I had surgery in Nov 5 months ago for acid reflux and hiatus hernia. I still get acid feeling in throat at
night. I’m not taking any medicines right now. I basically eat most foods. I don’t have indigestion rarely just the acid taste. I’m worried about my throat. I went back to my gastroenterologist and he said he would just put me back on medicine. I don’t feel like they healed the problem. He said we could do the test again. Those were the most horrible test I have ever done so my answer for that is no. Why do the test again? They already know that I have Gerd. I’ve lost 15 lbs. just need an answer as what to take.

Welcome to this forum.
As per your version, you are only having some acid taste now and you are thinking the surgery was not adequate? Had you expected a 100% reversal? Is that practically possible? And if you want to know how is the result of the surgery,the doctor has no other alternative except going for a repeat endoscopy to prove it. I suggest you to take anti acid reflux medications regularly.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
