I suffer severly from GERD. The pain has gotten to the point where I've had to leave my job and drop my classes because of the pain I get from it. I am 21 years old(22 next month) and live in San Jose, CA. I have had to go to the E.R. five times already and my doctor just keeps prescribing me medicines. At first the meds where working but now nothing works. The last medicine my Doctor prescribed me was Protonics. I keep telling my Doctor if they can do the LINX surgery on me but he doesn't want to. He says I am too young and that the medicine will work. I have insurance with Kaiser Hosptial. I am now at the point where I am going to search for a private Doctor to do the surgery on me. I know there is a doctor in Walnut Creek and a Doctor Tamas in UC Davis who does the surgery. Does anyone know of any other closer Doctor who can do the surgery on me? Will my Kaiser insurance pay for this if I get it somewhere else? Please help..
Thanks in advance,
