PPIs not helping LPR

Last August I started laking twice daily doses of Omeprazole to treat LPR. After 7 months it was working and I had no symptoms. The hoarseness and cough were gone and I was very happy. After that, I started developing IBS and ended up having to stop. Since then, all the symptoms are back and it is miserable.

Now, I am trying to learn more about the LYNX treatment, but I would like to know if anyone had undergone this treatment and whether they had success?

I know about the LYNX/LINX treatment but I haven't read about anybody having had it on the forums. It is really quite new. Especially for people with a loose upper stomach sphincter, it does seem to make a lot of sense if you can add extra strength to the ability to close off the esophagus.

That was my thought. I didn't really like the invasiveness of the Nissen procedure so this seems like a much better idea. On the flip side I am nervous about getting the procedure. From what I read, it only went through clinical trials in 2008. I am also nervous about setting off the metal detector at airports because I travel with business quite extensively.

More realistically, I also worry about the beads migrating out through the tissue because of the constant pressure. I don't want to have the procedure every 5 years or have complications.

For your medical questions, I would talk to the surgeon about these concerns. They can answer those fairly easily I would wager. But in terms of getting other people's experience, that might be more difficult. Best of luck and do consider sharing if you learn more or have the procedure. I have considered Nissen but I know people said it took a while to recover and since my symptoms are not that bad I haven't considered it further.
