I had an EDG showing esphogitis, confirmed with biopsy, last fall even though I was on a prevacid and carafate. I had a manometry and 24hr ph study done about
4 years ago when I was with another doctor. That doc swore I didn't have reflux, yeah I said bye bye to him. I've had several barium swallows- though none in the last year, gastric emptying test... etc etc over the years.
I really like my new gastro doctor, I just wish he did one of the endoscopic procedures. I think I would like to try that first before the nissen. However, I suppose I should stop jumping to things I would like to do until my appointment to see what I'm actually a candidate for. Last time I saw him he told me my esphogeal spasms were being cause by my esphogitis which was being caused by my reflux...so I would think there would be something surgically you could do to help that. I think I've taken every PPI out there
Like I said in another post somewhere if I could live off of ice cream I would! !
