For 2 years I dealt with GERD! I was in & out the hospital with TEST after TEST! Put to sleep numerous times to get tested on my esophagus, I have FULLY lost my voice and I'm now in VOICE THERAPY to get my voice back because the acid shut down my vocal chords, NO MEDICATIONS worked! It ended up turning into Severe GERD that lead to Barrett's Esophagus.
I had the surgery on July 10th! I was so in pain and sore afterwards. I have 5 laparoscopic cuts on my belly from the surgery. However the up side is GERD is gone meaning I haven't had anymore flux. HOWEVER the down side is the tightness in the stomach especially if you eat something wrong, I'm on s FULL liquid diet for 3 months, losing MAJOR weight, EXCESSIVE GAS from the lower end, frustration and depression not to mention your often tiresome from not being able to get the nutrients you need. It's a great surgery to get as a last resort which it was for me. But research this surgery and be ready for the trade offs! I'm glad I got it but I regret it at the same time! I just want my life and voice back and I wanna eat like a normal person again!!! >>I WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE <<
