    24 with bile reflux for over a year please help..advice/opinions

    my history of stomach problems starts 3 years ago i was put on nexium 40mg once a day for gastritis i have been on it since at the same dosage

    last april i all the sudden started getting this constant burning in my stomach and also developed some diarrhea resulting from it

    i went to a specialist then and had blood tests,sonogram,and upper endoscopy done..onyl thing that came was on the ensoscopy they saw tons of bile and diagnosed me with bile reflux with gastritis

    i was put on carafate pills ive tried 4 times a day 3 times a day and 2 times a day..for a while i was on 2 times a day but still felt burning but got by..then over this past summer it got worse i up it to 3 and it got somewhat better

    i went to a different specialist because of a disagreement i had with the previous one since seeing the new guys he has tried me on other ppis..which i know wont help since they dont help the majority of people with bile reflux problems they can actually make it worse

    i was put on ursodiol by my request due to research ive done i was put on that 300mg twice a day and that didnt help

    he tried me on bentyl and i had a bad reaction to that

    now i had a 2nd endoscopy my throat shows redness

    my problem is everything this dr seems to be saying and even treatment method seems to be aimed towards acid reflux and i know bile reflux is very different

    hes bringing up surgery and stuff but it seems like everything is related to acid reflux

    he sending me to another gi specialist to get a PH bravo capsule test done my consultation for that is next friday

    my feelings is i dont see how this can just happen out of no one of the things i see as a possible cause is being on the nexium i might try to wean my self off of it i have 20mg pills already from another dr i can use

    any advice on anything i should try or bring up to my doctors?

    anyone with more info on diversion surgery for it and if its helped you or anyone you know..after this surgery and you recover can you eat im a 24 year old male i want to live my life..i dont do drugs i dont drink i just want to be able to go out with my gf enjoy my time eat healthy but not have to worry to much about what i eat
