I have Gerd, Esophogitis ,IBS, Hiatal Hernia and Lactose Intolerance. The medications that I take for my stomach are , Kapidex, Carafate , Bentyl and I recently purchased Alkaline drops online. I have a host of other medical conditions that I take prescriptions for also. These include Albuterol, Flovent, Combivent, Spiriva, lasix, Diamox , Clariten and Nasonex. I follow a strict diet, no fatty , greasy, fried ,alcoholic or dairy. I elevate my head in bed and lay on my left side. I had test done which include upper and lower GI series, endoscope and a fluroscope. I do everything my Doctor tells me but I am still suffering . My Doctor also suggested that I lose weight. I put myself on a strict no sugar low fat diet, but my problem is that I have been diagnosed with a Metabolic disorder and I can't lose the weight. Please Doctor I need your help badly.
Thank you for your prompt responce to my post. I am already aware of Gastric Bypass Surgery intended for use in weight loss. I have a family member who underwent this procedure. He lost the weight and has also put his Diabetis under control.
Interstingly enough I have not heard of the Xsophy procedue yet. Sounds like a good tool to aide in surgery with less complications for the patient . Minimal inscisions are always a plus too.
