    I just had Dor Fundoplication with Heller surgery failure?
    Dave4769 posted:
    Just had surgery a month ago and my symptoms came back after 10 days. I've had every test under the sun and everything looks good. When I had the bravo study my acid was very high thats why surgery was recommended. I've been taking ppi for years and now they don't seem to work. I've been extremely sick for about 6 months acid taste in mouth, burning in nose, inner ear burning, heartburn and the most confusing of all my stomach burns like crazy. Also my symptoms come in cycles. I'm usually decent for 7-10 days and then basically on bed rest for 7-10 days. My doctor at this point says there's not many more options. He is doubling my nexium to 40mg twice daily and a Zantac before bed. He said try this for a month. I have no clue what to do or who else to ask. It's ruining my life. Any help would be appreciated..
