whatever 'normal' is

Posted 08-25-2013 at 04:04 PM by Frumquist (GERD - Fundoplication surgery)

The doctor says to go ahead with a normal life but use common sense. I'm not sure that those things always go together. He said it looks like we hit a home run with the healing from the surgery and the disappearance of all of the symptoms that we thought 'might' have been associated with gerd. Symptoms including, coughing, throat, and sinus problems accompanying the burning, regurgitating, swallowing problems.
After the first of the year (6 months post-op) I'll go back for a barium swallow...
