Re: reflux or hiatas hernia and or anxiety?

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...
Thank you for the note.Yes Plavix is for sure a irritant.I have been off it now for 9 months.I think all the drugs that they prescribe after the stents procedure irritate your esophagus.I have been reading and I may have what they call hyperventalation syndrome.I guess in time we will see.All the best to your husband and I hope he continues to feel better every day...
