Re: reflux or hiatas hernia and or anxiety?

My husband had 2 stents put in last Nov. and although before that he had slight acid relux it does seem like he gets it more. Like you he has a slight breathing problem and is on an inhaler. The Drs. think it has something to do with the Plavix. He is only suppose to have to take it till Nov of this year so we are waiting to see when he gets off of it if his symptoms will decrease. We know they won't go away completely but hopefully will be less. Some of it could be anxiety as well. He also has a hiatal hernia but he had that long before the stents. Drs. feel it is a combination of all.

Wishing you the best...JJ...
