    I know how you feel I have had the same thing for over 30yrs and still haven't found an answer, I also have terrible nausea,I also find going to the Drs a waste of time they just don't seem interested. Considering it is such a common complaint. Also I have found that the PPI tablets can cause the same symptoms as the reflux. I am at the moment waiting for an appointment to see if I am suitable for Stretta treatment but I also have a 2cm hiatus hernia so don't know if I can have it. Sorry I am not much help but it might be worth you asking your Dr about the stretta treatment it is available on the NHS but not all hospital's do it. I am lucky because I live in Merseyside and the Royal Liverpool hospital offer this treatment for reflux. Also I really want to come off the medication, I personally think they cause alot of problems when you have been on them a long time. I hope someone else will see your post and help you.

      Hello I am sorry you are going through this. I had a 4cm hiatel hernia and esophagitis pretty bad. It was a grade D which is the worst kind. I took Nexium and watched what I ate but nothing helped. I had Nissen Fundoplication surgery in June and they Dr also repaired my hernia. It's the best thing I ever did. I know longer have the pain I had before. If I were you I would look into your options and Linx or NF surgery and see what would be best for you. I wish you all the best. Take care. Lorray

      Hi Joyce yes I have not had to be on my meds since surgery. I was on 80 mg of Nexium 40 in the morning and 40 at night for 3 years. I know two other people that also had NF and they are also so glad they did it. I would definitely look into it. I feel there are a lot more success stories then the other way but then that's just my opinion. Best of luck and let me know if I can answer anything else. My surgeon was Dr Brian Louie in Seattle at Swedish Hospital. He did a great job. Take care. Lorray 💕

      Thanks for answering me, it was very good kind of you to take the trouble, well I am pleased everything has gone well for you. My drawback is I am British and believe me the NHS is not all its made out to be and privately that op is about £7.000 roughly. But once again many thanks.

      Hi Aswydan thank you. I hope you can get some relief soon. I had what is called the Nissen Fundoplication which is a wrap. There is a lot of information on that surgery on the internet. I know everyone is different but for me it worked well. I wish you all the best. Lorray

    If you look at google and type in Stretta treatment it will explain everything in detail much better than I can. It will explain all about the procedure and what to expect afterwards.
