What do you guys think of the Linx implant? Has anybody had this surgery?
I found out about it on Youtube, but most videos seemed like advertisement.
Anyhow the Linx implant seemed less radical than the Fundoplication in which they wrap the stomach around and stich it all together.
The Linx surgery seems reversible at least, whereas the Fundoplication surgery is not.
I'm seriously considering the Linx but would like more information on side effects, such as what is life like living with metal/magnets inside your body?
Would I set off alarms on banks, store, airports?
What if I accidentaly get and MRI done, what kind of damage would that do to my belly?
Can the metal parts of the Linx device glue to each other, perhaps due to tissue forming around them, preventing it from dilating and impeding my swallowing?
If anybody has any info or experience with this device please let know.
