have your surgeon prescribe zofran for the nausea. It had helped me after fundoplication as well as after gallbladder removal in 2017…..kozlo52

Jul 12, 2018 · Getting Off of Omeprazole in Digestive Health

i had h-pylori problem years ago and it was eradicated by medicine. i no longer have that problem. i had my endoscopy today and the results are all negative. the fundo wrap is intact; there is no thrush; there was slight erosion in the pyloric section of the stomach, but minor; there was no erosion of the esophagus or throat ; there was no bile. My gastro wants me to see a psychiatrist to prescribe a different antidpressant other than zoloft and atavan. too much atavan causes some double vision temporary which is a side effect of atavan.there it is . i have problems with the neck pain from so much arthritis, back pain from the l4-l5 stenosis, so this may be contributing to my perceived heartburn. there is no physical indication of acid reflux.???????………….kozlo52

i have also tried the unsweetened apple cider with vinegar and it still bothers my throat and that is after my fundoplication, 3 dilations. my fundoplication is 1.5 years old. i still experience heartburn symptoms, with no help from antacids. I am getting an endoscopy today from my gastroenterologist today july12, 2018. I hope to know more about what is going on and why does drinking water make it seem worse.

how long have you been on reglan? I ask this because the involuntary movements of the tongue are caused by reglan ( motility drug to promote movement of food thru the stomach). This phenomena is called tardive dyskinesia. If you were on it for a long time then than involuntary movement of the tongue may not go away. Your doctor may know. Pro motility drugs canhelp move the food out of the stomach. Years ago there was a very good drug for this called propulsid. however it was later banned because it caused heart ptoblems. There is another motility drug called domperidome. It can be obtained from canadadrugsonline.com but you need a script. It is not sold in the USA. I tried it once and after the second day i had a very bad body itch, but that is my body.The pills are 10 mg-3 times a day. My friends husband also tried it for about 2 months, but it started to give him tardive dyskinesia and he had to stop. …. kozlo52

I can tell you to avoid completely ; coffee-caffeine will cause more acid production; no chocolate- (cocoa bean) which has caffeine; no soda since the carbonation will help promote acid production; avoid spicy foods; avoid fried foods.. learn to live with a bland diet.

i really didn't find any other info in this article that i didn't know already. My problem is that i havebeen experiencing "heartburn sensation", even though bravo 48 hr testing has indicated no acid reflux since the fundoplication of nov. 2016. I have been diagnosed with "hyper sensitive esophagus". it's the feeling of heartburn but is the esophagus being disturbed. I also still experience gagging type syndrome.
i plan to have another endoscopy on7/12/18, by my gastroenterologist. i can not tolerate another 48 hour bravo because of severe arthritis in the c3-c7 region of my neck and stenosis in my back L4-L5. I was supposed to get epidermals for the back and neck on 6/28/18 but my "heartburn" was so bad that i could't due to the possibilty of being intibated sfter c3-c4 cortisone injection to act as a nerve block. C3 controls your breathing thus the potential for intibation. Antacids do not work on my heartburn. I am on zoloft 100 mg and up to 4 atavan (1mg) per day to control tyhe "perceived heartburn". By the time i take the 3rd atavan i am sleeping in my recliner by 6pm. The possibity exists that the bile that was found in my stomach after gallbladder removal might be disturbing the stomach, becuase my symptoms feel like bile reflux ( throat burn, mouth burn, sour taste). it does not matter what i eat or drink. Water seems to make thing worse. Ensure does help better. This may explain why my weight has gone up 15 lbs sice 11/2016….Anyone else have this after fundoplicatio followed by gallbladder. I personally did better before the fundo being on 60 mg of prevacid and 4000mg od sulcrafate. I regret ever having the fundoplication. I would like to have an esophagael impedence to see if the bile is the culprit. If it is then a ROUN-Y procedure may be needed which will put a bypass from the stomach to a lower part of the intestine to keep bile out of the stomach. If bile is not the culprit then it may back to reversal of the fundoplication. I can't take the gagging and "burn" continuosly…..kozlo52

Feb 19, 2018 · Reversal of a fundoplication in Digestive Health

give it some time. I had a very large hiatal hernia repair in nov., 2016 repaired and a 360 gree fundoplication . I have had heartburn like symptoms ever since. I have finally been disgnosed with a "hypersensitive esophagus" which means it is very susceptable to this heartburn feel although the bravo 48 hour test that was done indicates i am neutral on ph; there is no acid reflux. The link also has it's problems. My current solution is to be on atavan 4 times a day to relax the esophagus muscles. Go back to the original surgeon and tell him your problems. Maybe you have my condition. The AMA solution for my problem is hypnotism (which after 12 sessions and $1100 out of my pocket did not work); thus the atavan, even though i am not depressed. The dangers of staying on the antacids is : possible osteoporosis; kidney failure; dementia;altheimers disease. Have you had any food sticking? I had 7 incidences of this and had to have 3 dilations in 5 months. beast wishes….. kozlo52
