Re: those who had TIF surgery

I had a TIF 1.5 years ago. I have not been on any medicine for reflux after I recovered from the TIF. My DeMeester score went from 28 to 5.8, over 20 is severe. I am drinking coffee, soft drinks, beer and eating anything I want and not having the pain from the reflux. Mine TIF was well worth it.

Re: those who had TIF surgery

I was on a PPI for 9 years to reduce the stomach acid which eliminated that traditional heart burn for me. I did often have a pain over my sternum and I would get an uncomfortable and anxious feeling when I was refluxing. I would wake up after 3 or 4 hours sleep and be wide awake for a couple of hours. Like yourself, it felt like it was driving me crazy at times.

Hello Sam
i was diagnosed by a device called : pH probe test
which showed that there is acid at my uvula level, especially at night

i was diagnosed to have what is called Laropharngeal reflux ( lpr) where the acid reflux reaches my throat

and my worst symptom was that awful feeling of something stuck in your throat

and actually in my case we discovered that i have reflux just after i made an appendix removal surgery. but i don't think there is a relation with this

maybe i had reflux from before.

the problem is that i don't suffer from heartburn at all
just an awful feeling stuck in my throat, that also can't make me sleep at all
i'm already driven crazy by it.

Re: those who had TIF surgery

Thank you for responding...this is all new to me so I'm trying to figure out what might be the cause of my problem...it sounds like I have the same problem as you. Do you have a Hiatal hernia or h-pylori ? What is the underlying cause of the acid going into your throat? What has helped make it go away?
