Welcome to ehealthforum,
To prevent recurrences of the GE reflux, you should follow these steps: continue to take the medications as prescribed by your treating doctor for the duration instructed, and report back if symptoms are not controlled or if symptoms recur often, maintain simple diet avoiding fatty foods, oil and spice, take small frequent meals, avoid citrus fruits or fruit juices, avoid caffeine intake, avoid smoking (quit smoking if you smoke), leave gap of atleast 1 hour between meals and lying down, avoid stress. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest.
