Hey all, its my first post here and i'm[br>hoping someone can offer some kind of help...a[br>little background, i've been living with GERD[br>since I was about 10 (now 28) and finally, on[br>February 13th of this year, I had the Nissen[br>Fundoplication. Just prior to the NF, I was[br>having chest pain so bad I had to wake up hours[br>early so I could stand up straight by time for[br>work...[br>Well, now I have no acid reflux, I do have 10[br>ulcers from acid damage over the years and[br>esophagitis in a section of my esophagus...but[br>now the chest pain is back and slowly but surely[br>getting worse. I talked back to the doctor who[br>did it and he checked for hernias and basically[br>told me it was normal...if this is gonna be[br>normal i'm in trouble...cause today has been[br>bad...it is so painful in the right quadrant of my[br>chest...movement, deep breaths...everything[br>hurts it.[br>What can I do? How can I convince a doctor to[br>do the right thing to fix it? Thanks in advance[br>everyone!View Thread
