Recently Diagnosed with GERD/Laryngopharyngeal Reflux, What Shoul I do?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi everyone

I am recently diagnosed with GERD/Laryngopharyngeal Reflux due to my symptoms. I have soar throat, belching, and difficulty in swallowing. I literally feel food going through me esophagus. If I eat something oily or fried I feel food stuck in my throat. I constantly feel some sort of pressure or inflammation in lower part of my throat which when I burp reduces mildly. I feel abdomen gas too. I am on dexlansoprazole 60mg PPI from last week. Please tell me how long it takes for my symptoms to completely go off?

    Whatever you do, don't do the Nissen Fundoplication. This surgery should be banned. I had it done in December 2018 and it changed my life until last week when I had it reversed. I could not eat, nauseated 24/7, threw up in my sleep. I felt like I would go to sleep and never wake up. I'm sure my physician was incompetent and wrapped me so tight my esophagus was smaller than a straw. I just had it revered last week and I feel like my life will be back on track. I went to the Mayo clinic though.

    I had the fundoplication 2.5 yes ago. Fixed the heartburn but it doesn't fix LPR. Had issues eating carbs this yr had gastric emptying test done, Found that stomach emptying sliwly. Now on Motilium, this has helped a lot.

    you drink a solution and eat a sandwich, then scan to see how quickly/slowly the food moves thru digestion system. Before the test and going on to Motilium anytime I ate carbs, they just sat in my stomach, was n't interested in food. Lost 6kg. Now eating carbs, putting the weight back on. But still need to be careful what I eat. Try keeping to the Acid Watcher Diet

    Is there any cure for delayed gastric emptying or do you have to take drugs for the rest of life?

    The secret is not being on meds until the problem goes away. Instead you MUST modify your diet:

    NO or little:

    Fatty foods

    Oily foods

    Citrus

    Chocolates

    Alcohol

    Garlic

    Vinegar

    and many others.

    Also find out exactly when you're to take the PPI. My woefully inexperienced doctor, who I no longer see as I moved to a more experienced one, NEVER told me when to take the meds and for 18 mths I discovered I was taking them at the wrong time.
