highly recommend TIF surgery

In February, I had Transoral Incision Free (TIF) fundoplication surgery because my DeMeester score was 29. This is very high. Nothing I could do seemed to manage my reflux at all and after more than a decade, I had enoughl. Now, I have ramped down my PPIs and everything is normal. My DeMeester score is now 5.6. It look a few months for my stomach to behave but it seems content at this point. At this stage, I can eat like a normal person and don't have to make any special arrangements so I am quite happy. If anyone is considering the surgery, I highly recommend it. My only regret is that I didn't do something sooner.

RE: highly recommend TIF surgery

That is excellent news. I am glad it has gone well for you. Was this something your GI doc suggested or did you have to beg to get the opportunity for surgery?

It's great to hear about your success story, it must be a huge relief to be free from reflux. How long did it take to recover from the surgery? Did you experience any pain post-surgery? I have had surgery before and the post-surgery pain has made me wary.

RE: highly recommend TIF surgery

My doctor was great. She saw how bad my reflux was and said that I should read up on the surgery before meeting with a surgeon. The surgeon wasn't very personable but he was very good at surgery because I have healed without any problems.

Interesting I didn't even know such a surgical procedure could be done to help control Acid Reflux. In fact, I have never even had my DeMeester score checked. I guess the GI doctor was satisfied to know that my Acid Reflux got under control after my blood pressure got under control and that was enough to know that no further testing or treatment was needed.
