Exclamation PPi's doesn't work, so what about the surgery ?

hello all
briefly i have been suffering from the awful lump in throat feeling, and after 24 hour probe analysis, i was diagnosed to have LPR
then i was prescribed the following:
1) Gaviscon advanced ( twice daily )
2) Ranitic 300mg ( once daily )
3) Pantozol 20 mg ( once daily )

and after 70 days on this treatment i felt no single change, so another doctor told me to take a stronger combination for one month
1) Controloc 40mg ( twice daily )
2) Baclofen 25mg ( once daily )

now i am on the new medicin for just 3 days, but i have no hope that these medicains will work

so what about anti-reflx surgery ??
has any of you tried it ? and how he felt after ??
did any have my same symptom ??
have the ppi's ever worked ?

i will be very grateful if any can help me
thank you

when i have the lump in throat feeling hate that also, its a stomach ulcer for me. i take a pepcid before each meal for about a week or two and then it goes away. and i dont eat last at night before bed and i take my pill right before i go to sleep. i take a pepcid at night for the night time pill also.
