I am a 17 year old female and and still have so much of life ahead of me! I have been suffering from severe gerd since I was 2 years old. I have permanent damage to my esophagus and a small stomach ulcer that is being treated with sulcarafate. I take 60mg-80mg of Nexium everyday. The nexium has been helping slightly. Instead of expiriencing gerd after every meal it has narrowed down to only about 4 or 5 times a week. I have always had regurgitation and chest pain but I have just recently started suffering from shortness of breath and throbbing throughout my entire chest. I was wondering if anyone would suggest a Nissen Fundoplication? Also what would the pros and cos of this surgery be?
