Testimonials / Grace Smith
My reflux symptoms started in January 2017 with the sensation of a lump in my throat. This progressed to heartburn and nausea. I did not feel like eating and lost over a stone in weight. PPIs did not work for me so I had the pH monitoring and Manometry test which confirmed high acid levels.
Recommended by a friend.
Mr Boyle assessed my condition and deemed me a suitable candidate for the LINX implant which I was really happy about.
The operation was very straight forward using keyhole surgery to implant the LINX device. I had very little pain or discomfort after my op. I had no acid reflux which was brilliant.
In my first couple of weeks I experienced very little dysphasia but I did have food pooling above the device. This improved over time but it’s very important to chew your food well and eat slowly.
The healing process is still ongoing for me but being able to eat all my favourite foods and drink alcohol again without any acid reflux is fantastic.
Yes, I would highly recommend Mr Boyle for his expertise on the LINX implant. I really felt I was in safe hands at all times.
