Thank you for the quick response and kind words of support. I appreciate them. I have been in contact with my team at Lahey Clinic in Massachusetts. They have made some prescription changes, so far without the desired result, so we continue to work on. My diet is pretty healthy. We avoid fried foods and fatty food, we never eat fast food, as a general rule. I have found no common ground triggers for the heartburn within my diet. Will continue to work on this, and hope that it may be a symptom that goes away.

/hi Craig, I'd like to add my welcome and to invite a few more fellow liver transplant recipients to this discussion like @btwest6 @jackie421blfdgurl @athenalee @gaylea1 @karmamamma @silverwoman and more. They may have additional tips to offer about heartburn and acid reflux post transplant.

I know some people find it helpful to raise the head legs slightly so that you're not lying flat. Have you tried that?
