Acid Reflux / GERD Board Index


Hi- I am 34 years old, and have recently been diagnosed with "horrible" GERD...it started out as severe abdominal pains when I would eat [I]anything[/I]...ended up losing 13 lbs in about 6 wks. Doctor thought it was my gallbladder, but all tests came back negative. I had an EGD which showed the damage to my esophagus ( I never had burning, like acid reflux, just pains in my upper right side of the abdomen under my ribcage) I am taking 150 mg of Zantac twice a day, but still wake up with a sore throat and bitter/sour taste in my mouth. Also, recently I have noticed "palpitations" or fluttering in my chest, which I am thinking is related to the reflux... My doctor wants me to have a Nissen Fundoplication, but I'm a bit hesitant. Has anyone had this procedure, and did it relieve your symptoms completely? Also, how many diet restrictions do you have now after this surgery?

Thanks!!
