I had GERD pre-surgery. It went completely away for two years, but now it's back. It's not as bad as it was pre-surgery, though. It's more stomach discomfort now (gassy, acidy, sour) than GERD though, I think. I've only had that burning throat sensation maybe 5 or 6 times in the last couple of years.
I still have GERD and take ranitidine 150 bid. But its much more mild than pre-surgery.

Fat is the major ? discomforter ? . Eating fat laden meals makes Ur tummy make far more acidic digestive juices .
I had a giant birth defect that runs in my family ... Dad and Grandma also had / have it . A huge hiatal hernia that brought stomach acid into my esophagus . It was fixed and miraculously ... no more GERD ... however I notice when I do eat fat 9 years post op ... yeah I get an echo of the discomfort back . Sucks.
