Ugh. Thanks for letting me know. It is down as "anticipated lapararoscopic surgery, possible open once in surgery", so I don't think they will actually know which is being done until they are in there. I am probably going to cancel it. It just sucks so much, because if I DON'T do it, I am on PPI's for the rest of my life, which I have been reading can lead to a shorter life span, alzheimer's, etc. And if I DON'T take them, I risk esophogeal cancer.
Can they not come up with any better surgeries than one that destroys so many lives? I don't get it. Why even perform this surgery if it is this risky?

Have them do a PH test for low acid in your stomach. It causes the same symptoms, acid reflux, heart burn, you name it. Do bad that they did not test me before I had my NF, or I may have never needed it in the first place. Everyone thinks of to much acid, I have never heard of low acid until my mom, my sister and my niece all take medication right before they eat because they have low acid and had acid reflux and sever heart burn. I was so upset when I found this out. Please look it up! I'm having my NF taken down in Jan.
