After a manometry test i have been told i have weak oesophageal muscles and hypotensive upper oesophagus... therefore the surgeon has suggested that best option for me is stretta whereas I would have preferred either lynx or fundoplication for my regurgitation.my insurance company (axa) have declined to pay for stretta or lynx.... on the basis that there is no evidence that they are effective..... i am very confused.if these procedures are not effective then surely they would not have been approved by nice and be offered under NHS? Any Advice will be helpful...... better still if anyone has has lynx or stretta and has found it effective? Please enlighten me.thank you all
