Well, I'm 10 days out of surgery of LPR. LPR is Larynpharngeal Refux. I had this for a very long time. There was burning in my throat. I couldn't talk at times and I couldn't swallow most of the time, not very well. I had a cough or clearing my throat all the time.
I had a procedure called roux en y. Also known as Gastric Bypass. I would have ended up with esophageal cancer if I had not had it done. I thank the Drs. that have that skill. I am over weight,but not grossly over weight that most would think , when talking about a gastric bypass. You still need to do the same diet. I have lost 12 pounds this week This is not an easy fix. I truly love what it has done for me. It gave me my life back.
I hope is that anyone that has symptons like I have talked about, visit your Dr. If you are taking medications for acid reflux, there are other options. You are not to stay on these acid reducder drugs for a long time. It can knock out your pronton pump, that help you with your acid.
I hope I have shared something medical that can help anyone out there.
Thank you Sandy
