I’m new to this site so forgive me if I’ve posted in the wrong section.
I had severe acid reflux for approximately 5years and after several tests I had Nissen Fundoplication Surgery 2 years ago.
In all fairness I was happy with the results overall, completely off all medications but since the surgery I now suffer with excess gas ( not good when you’re on a night out and have cramps as you’re trying your hardest not to let rip in public!)
Over the last 4 months I’ve developed this cough and a shortness of breath ( not sure if the shortness of breath is caused by me coughing) and even if I laugh I cough. Recently this cough has now got a lot worse it’s constant and worse after I eat and especially in the evenings. I also feel as if I have a lump in my throat and a tight pain in my oesophagus and like some food is stuck in back of my throat after eating.
Could this be a sign my acid reflux has returned.. I’ve been to my GP 4 times in the last couple of weeks and he’s put me back on 30mg lamsoprazol first thing in the morning and 300mg Ranitidine in the evening. These tablets seem to be having no affect at all unlike years ago when I used to take my lansoprazol on its own it would work.
Forgot to mention had a lung X-ray which came back normal and tomorrow having a Spirometry test.
I’m a real worrier and worst thing I could possibly have done is looked up oesophageal cancer and that’s all I keep thinking I have and tumours.
I’m so worried... has anyone here had similar symptoms ?
