Operation for GERD (23 years old)
I am from Europe 23 old, 75kg, student and in 3 last years I have problems with my stomach. I posted here because I dont find the LINX method in europe.
My symptoms are: I spit my food that comes from the stomach for 3-6 hours after meal even I am sitting straight on the office. Cant do gymnastic or run for 5 hours after meal. After 5-6 hours I am hungry. Small meals helps a bit. Rarely I have heartburn or I have very low heartburn. Never can sleep after small or large meal.
Endoscope: inadequate esophageal convergence without esophagitis small diaphragmatic hernia and gastritis on stomach's body, negative helicobacter (it was positive and i got a treatment)
Doctors says that the results of endoscope and ultrasound does not justify my symptoms. Nexium only will help for better sleep nothing more. Walking for 1-2 hours makes me feel good but I cant do that because I am working/studying in office. I am really thinking for an operation because its very hard to run do gymnastic and affects also my sexual life.
I thought if you do Linx operation you will have problem doing magnetic tomography in the future. Is it designed to stay forever or you remove it after treatment? Please give some advise before doing any step thank you!
