    EsophyX...anyone

    I was just wondering if anyone has heard of..... or had the procedure done called EsophyX ( Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication )...It is "suppose to cure Acid reflux...YEAH " right...like we haven't heard that line before....I am going to call the surgeon who did my Nissen surgery to see if he does this procedure too...I would really love to have "just a little relief...I can live with the burning, belching, stuff in my throat, not to mention the sore throats...but to be able to breath normal again would be great...God bless.... Patricia

    EsophyX is a transoral surgery developed by Endogastric Solutions out of Washington State. It has just been FDA approved. A study out of Europe says it is 80% effective in reducing symptoms but it is still very new and I am reading conflicting personal stories on how effective it really is.
