Hey Dennis. I know your pain buddy. I haven’t researched the reversal yet. I’m going to get scoped this Tuesday ( north and south pole) because this GI thinks I’ve got more than one thing going on. I literally have made my peace with God three times. Even though I did have a hernia, this doc says there’s a reason for so much acid. That reason he explained, is my body trying to control the bad bacteria in my small intestine. Well, over time somethings gotta give, and I developed GERDS. I’ve missed some work, but it’s getting worse. And I too am worried. My stomach, chest, or guts hurt all the time now. I’m being checked for Celiac disease, Crohns, diverticultis, IBS, and some others. Once I get these results I will see what this GI recommends. I will also talk to him about benefits of a reversal. I did have mine done at Mayo in Phoenix. Awesome female surgeon. I won’t ever go for surgery anyplace else. The only two things that give me some relief are, nexium, and keeping something in my stomach. I have been to a holistic doc. Spent about $600.00 on supplements. Got some relief. Short-lived though. My advice Dennis, for what it’s worth is to see if you’ve got something secondary that’s causing your symptoms. In the meantime, I will be researching the pros and cons of a reversal and let u know what I find out ok. Hang in there buddy. I know it’s miserable. But you’re not alone. I’m on the Internet every night talking with people about this. There’s an overload if opinions though. It’s hard to sort through it all, but I’m pretty damn perserverant, and tired of feeling like this. Try nexium for now is all I’ve right now. You may have also developed ulcers post surgery like I did. Take care.
