Hi Just a small update, i have had the results from my barium swallow and was told i do have acid reflux which i knew i had. And was told at night when sleeping i am suffocating every 5 minutes in my sleep from the acid coming up all night.
This is what caused my Emphysema changes and acid is still splashing in my lungs at night i now have to see a surgeon to see if they can fix my acid problem, but was told they might refuse because i still smoke.
i have been on 40Mg Omeprazole for about 6 months now the hospital has told me to start taking 80Mg a day 2 in the morning and 2 at night and no food or drink after 5pm to see if it helps. But 80Mg seems a lot to me.
