First consultation today re Linx

Saw the GI cons for first time today, he's great made me feel very at ease and he's done more of the Linx surgeries than any other specialist in the UK, so that's makes me feel more confident.

I'm going to have endoscopy and some kind of swallow test where I have to swallow a probe that measures my PH for 24 hours. That will all be happing over next few weeks.

I've opted for a non sedation endoscopy as don't like the idea of being sedated and my mum had one done few years ago and said it was fine, so if she could manage I'm sure I will and I don't have bad gag reflex so think I'll be fine.

We need to discuss the results as that will determine if I can have the operation or not, I will report back after all tests. ENT consultation tomorrow, another operation for that too but one at a time!
