Hi, Deb. You're really not having a good time of things, are you? It sounds to me as though you have the very same problem I had. I have every sympathy with you, as this is most distressing at times. I had the surgery on 26 Jan this year, and not for a nano second have I regretted it. It's only now I have had it done, that I realise that it's not normal to have your food travelling back up your gullet into your throat. I suffered for years, with docs just giving me crap advise and telling me to lose weight and prop up the bed end. Within a year of my first admission, I had had the ph and manometry tests, and had the surgery. My advice to you would be to keep at the hospital, phone the consultants secretary, and hound her until you get seen. It is so unfair that you are being messed around in this way. I hope your doctors are as good as mine. I once being discharged, and the doctor put his hand over mine, and said 'I hope you and your family realise that you are suffering from a serious illness, this is not just heartburn, it is an illness, and needs to be treated as such.' This was a long winded way of telling you that by cutting back, and allowing yourself to feel ill is not always a bad thing. I don't mean sit and wallow in it, but listen to your body, if you ahve to take a rein check, then allow yourself to take it. Believe me, when you do get the surgery, you will realise how poorly you have been. Please keep us updated, and take care, Caroline..xxxx
