I posted over a week ago about whether or not getting surgery for GERD was a good decision. I just simply want to know what anyone thinks. If they have had it done....are they satisfied with results or is it simply just a waste of time? I'm going in for the pre-op soon and just getting a little nervous.View Thread
Well, thanks for responding. I don't know of any other boards which discuss GERD, but I guess google it and find out. If you know of any specific ones that you find useful, let me know, it would be appreciated. Thanks.View Thread
I have had most symptoms of which everyone has described with GERD. Chest pain, tightness etc, tried medication that does not aleviate all symptoms. The actual question I have is that after having multiple tests done, nissen surgery is what the Dr. recommends. I would like to hear from people who have had surgery, just to get feedback on if it works or not.View Thread
