question on a reflux issue??
Yep----never had it pre op-----raging case since about 2 weeks after surgery.
However, it is controlled with Nexium 40mg---the powdered stuff. I do start each day with meds then a protein shake (1/2 for breakfast and 1/2 for a mid morning snack). It kind of calms my stomach (and I do like the shake).
The only other accommodation is that I avoid "tomato" type foods--a little to much acid for me.
It's been the only negative of surgery but worth it--controllable.
Maybe you need a double dose of something? One for AM and 1 for PM? My only suggestion.
try different OTC brands, or talk to your doc about a prescription med...
