My husband suffered from acid reflux for some time. Finally I discovered that they were doing a new procedure called the Linx system at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. He called and got an appointment for a consultation and they did the surgery. He hasn't had a problem with reflux since. However, while they were doing all the testing, it was discovered that the acid had already aspirated into his lungs and the damage was done. He was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and is now on 10 LPM of oxygen 24-7. That was 2014. Pulmonary fibrosis is a progress, terminal disease. He is under Hospice care and we try to enjoy each day we have. So, I tell everyone I know that suffers from adid reflux do not waste time trying all the recommended remedies. Get to a top notch facility immediately. And I highly recommend the Mayo Clinic.
