I am considering having a hip replacement op. I have no sphincter at the base of my oesaphagus following my cancer op. six years ago. I wake up choking due to reflux occasionally but can deal with it by sitting up, as I'm conscious, which would not be the case during an operation. Does anyone know if special arrangements are put in place for patients like ourselves ?
