I have suffered from acid reflux since my mid twenties - I am now sixty five.
Over the years I have had to regularly increase the dose of acid inhibitors - I started on Omaprezole, then Lansoprazole and am now on Pantoprazole 40mg twice daily plus Peptac liquid at night and usually sleep in a semi sitting position.
I was also dignosed with Barrat's Oesophagus about eight years ago, but have not had another endoscopy for over five years now.
I understand there is an op available to repair (replace?) the sphincter, but my GP has always dismissed this - is it something I should be pressing for?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
