Peggy, so sorry you've had such a time these past months, hope this surgery will greatly relieve your symptoms.

I had a fundoplication 3 years ago which stopped all my horrible burning-on-the-inside and aspiration attacks. Yes, recovery from the surgery was rough and a new and different way of eating was an adjustment, but well worth it as a trade for the reflux.

Sounds like your doctor has researched your situation fully and that the gastric bypass will be your best chance for a great result. I'll keep you in mind next week too, wish you the best for a speedy recovery!
