I’ve probably had reflux for probably four or five years. I had a lot of heartburn, pressure, pain, burning type feeling and with different foods it would aggravate it make it worse. So I started being very particular about what I ate, scared that that feeling was going to come back. And it got worse over the years. After four to five years of taking Zantac and Prilosec and eating tums like candy I figured it was time to come make an appointment. I made an appointment to see Dr. Bagnato and came in for a consultation; he did an EDG on me, ran the scope down my throat and realized I had a hernia.

That was probably causing a good bit of the GERD so I made another appointment to have the surgery and it was an outpatient procedure. I came in one morning and was home that afternoon, very painless procedure, very little downtime. I got three kids so I was back at work I think three four days later, so it was a very easy process. I feel much better now, I feel like I did before I started having any trouble at all. I don’t have any limitations on what I can eat, what I can drink, when I go out to dinner I have no restrictions on trying to stay away from certain foods anymore, because I have not had any problems since my surgery at all. Wish I had done it years ago.

I have not had any medication since the surgery, no tums, no over the counter, no anything. I mean I’ve gone back to living my life normal as I did before I ever had it in the first place. I would tell people suffering from GERD that there are other alternatives you don’t have to live uncomfortable.
