Recently everytime I nave PAD surgery in my legs through the femoral artery I have bile reflux. It takes several days in the hospital to calm things down. I do take Dexilant 60mg a day and the week prior to the surgery I take the medication twice a day. Does anybody have a clue on what may bring on these attacks. I have type 2, a high BMI, reflux disease as well as COPD, Colitis and assorted other health issues. I realize my health issues can exasperate me and add to the bile attacks, but what can I do to quite myself down without additional hospital stays. Perhaps continue Dexilant twice a day for several weeks?
