I had linx device fitted last September so it's been more than three months now since
The surgery. I had the surgery done privately at spire hospital where I live at Leicester
, one of the main problems I had before the surgery was bloating! The trapped wind gave
Me horrendous pain in my belly and my back! I was told that this is because of acid
Reflux! The GP always insisted that the cause is acid reflux! The surgeon put me through pH
Manometry test and said that the test showed acid in my oesophagus and when I asked
Him if this acid is the cause of my back pain he replied "can't think of anything else!!".
Any way, I paid for the surgery and had it done, went through the difficulty swallowing
Stuff and struggled like hell but got through it, now the problem of bloating is still there! In fact
It is worse! I feel suffocated, can't fill my lungs with air! Can't take a deep breath, feel like there is
Always gas in my ubber stomach pushing on my chest giving me back pain and
The feeling of a tight knot in my upper stomach. Been to see the surgeon for the follow up
And he said that I swallow air and he will order a barium swallow test to check what's
Wrong. I feel like the linx is blocking the gas from moving through the digestive system, and I started
To think that the surgery made me worse, I feel like the real problem is something else that is causing
Me to be bloated! I take charcoal tablets and windeze and drink plenty of pepper mint tea. These remedies
Do help a bit but I still feel sok bad that sometimes I feel like I am going to faint! I burb massive burbs after every
Meal, I feel so relieved and feel like I can breathe properly for few minutes but then the gas starts to build up again
In my upper stomach and I feel crap again! Please any one who can give advice on this?
