I have IBS-d, controlled by half an Imodium Instant per day.
I had my Gallbladder removed last year. At the time I also had an endoscopy, the surgeon told me I have a small hiatus hernia.
At that time my acid reflux was controlled by 20 mg Omeprazole.
15 months on I now need to take 40 mg Omeprazole a day to keep the acid away, and I still need to be careful what I eat.
Does anyone out there recognise this pattern of increase? I also have a job where I lift things. The surgeon said this would not cause acid, but I'm not so sure as the acid is often better when I'm on holiday.
