Hi, just want to share my experience in case people can reassure me., I have been seeing a doctor and also Gastro enterologists over the years for an answer to acid reflux, and bile reflux with oesophagitis and gastritis. I recently lost my Mum and have been under a lotmore emotional stress. It may just be coincidence, but my symptoms have worsened, in spite of being on 40mg Omeprazole. I am due to return to the doctor soon, but am dreading another endoscopy. I fear the worst. From the horror stories I read about fundoplication, it does not seem like a good option, just a last resort. I wonder also if people have gastrectomies to prevent damage to the oesophagus? I have been drinking very strong tea and coffee, which are definitely a no no, but am trying not to. I find it very difficult to cope with no caffeine and get really bad withdrawal. Any ideas? The worry keeps me awake from 3am every night.
