Does anyone have a variety of symptoms associated with Acid Reflux that are chronic? Such as chest pain, back pain, weird tastes, etc.? Please tell me your symptoms. A little worried here…thinking it may be something more serious.

No, I have silent reflux,. Part of my surgery was a fundoplication part of my stomach was wrapped around my esophagus. My vagus nerve was damaged. I no longer have a digestive system.

Thankyou for that info. I have been taking vitamin since my breast cancer. My oncologist said I needed it. My breast cancer was in 2002 and I had a double mastectomy at Sloan Kettering in New York City. They said d3 is something they give their cancer patients too. Most everyone living in the north east is low and I was too. Now thanks to you I know it’s good for this too. THANKYOU

I have Gerd really bad and take 40mg of Omeprazole 2 times a day.. When I stop taking it for a month,t he stabbing pains return in full force.. It feels like I drank boric acid as well , when eating certain foods…. I had to stop drinking coffee all together that has helped.. Hope you feel better soon..

I had hernia repair surgery 2 years ago. It left me with gastroparesis. I just found out I have another hernia. I am taking protonix 2x’s a day.

I’m also tagging Mentor @kdubois to see if she has any more insight.
Since you mentioned Stage 1A adenocarcinoma, I would also encourage you to view this discussion in the Cancer group on Connect:

I don’t know where you live but I strongly recommend the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. It might be far for you, but I travel 1200 miles to get there. The gastroenterology Department there is fantastic.

Where do you live’. I live in Dallas and need to find a doctor beyond just my gastroenterologist who does the scopes. I have had four scopes over the past 8 years with two ablations in the past six months and one EMR IN JUne. Who is your doctor at Mayo.? I will consider going there perhaps. I have been to a surgeon at MDAnderson in Houston. But I do not need a surgeon any more he tells me. So I don’t know a plan beyond the next ablation.
I live in Kalispell MT but moving to Oregon soon. I see Dr Kenneth Wang at the Mayo Clinic. Here is a link to his Mayo bio,hope this is allowed. http://www.mayo.edu/research/faculty/wang-kenneth-k-m-d/bio-00025827
I saw Dr Burdick
at Phoenix Mayo and had Linx surgery by Dr. Harold there also, it is a excellent facility if you don’t want to travel all the way east.
Hi @dandl48, unfortunately, I don’t have experience with Barrett’s. a question though… since you can’t have the nissen wrap, are they able to perform the LINX surgery, or do the same restrictions apply? Best of luck with your up-and-coming Mayo visit. Keep us posted.
I’m going to ask again about LINX next Monday when I’m back at Mayo. I think my hernia is too large for it.

What is a wrap or linx? You are the only person I have heard from who has had the same treatment as me with the RFA and resection. I am so pleased to hear that you have gotten over the high dysplasia. Where do you live/have you always been treated at Mayo in Rochester? I would love to visited further with you if you could call me. I am trying to decide if it would be beneficial to go there myself. I go to a gastroenterologist here in Dallas and take 80 mg of protenix a day but feel I will need someone else to try to cure the BE since they have confirmed a cancer cell stage 1a. The only treatment offered to me is doing the RFA treatments and surveilence for the rest of my life. I want some assurance of cure.
Thanks for the info. Vinegar did not help.
told I had barrett’:s last November since April have been suffering with itchy and dry throat some drip in morning. A little reflux when lying down a lot of burping Doc has tried a lot of meds on me some of them have given me bouts of loose bowels. I am now on Prilosec 2x a day and still have same problem with throat. Had a throat scan, found nothing.I am worried Barretts will turn bad. Are my symptoms what you guys have experienced with acid reflux. I also have hiatal hernia.
The website asks for Pfitzgerald’s password. I don’t have it, and can’t change it to my account from the page your link brings up. Perhaps you can attach the information to your Connect posts?
If you would please share – did you just have it recently? What was your experience with the procedure and recovery time, positive changes for having done it?
