    Is Surgery better than this?
    An_267767 posted:
    I've had reflux for the last 5 years with the symptons constantly getting worse. Whenever I eat i get the feeling of food being stuck, bloating, nausea, in some cases acid regurtitation, belching, and strange high pitch hiccups sporadically throughout the day. I've done the tests, tried the pills, cut out all the foods that are known to cause acid to no avail. To be honest it's getting to a point where i'm sick of it & no longer look forward to eating. I have stopped exercising as i feel my stomach swish around even if i wait three hours after eating... So my question is; does anyone have similar symptons? Has anyone has the surgery and can advice if this helps at all? Or can recommend anything else for me to try?
