    indigestion and heart burn post ACDF

    Has anyone had problems with indigestion, heart burn or acid reflux after the surgery? I had it every once in a while before the surgery. But I've had episodes of it almost everyday since the surgery. So I am just wondering if anyone else has had the same problem.

    Yes, like you I have had gastritis and oesophagitis before the op. After the op it did get worse for a while and I think the acid was triggering the belching mechanism as I couldn't stop belching. I think it was the manipulation of the oesophagus during the operation and also general inflammation that caused it - I think all those bits are very close together but I am not medically trained. Glad to say that it has now gone back to pre-op levels - I took extra Pariet for it but that is a brand name - it is some type of acid blocker I take with my daily dose of aspirin.

    Hope this helps Bobbyboo x
