LINX® Treatment

Success Story, Danielle - East Sussex

"I had a very sudden onset of GERD and reflux following an incident in weight training. "

Please describe your symptoms before having treatment and approximately how long you experienced them for;

I had a very sudden onset of GERD and reflux following an incident in weight training. It became more acute quite quickly and although there were high doses of PPIs prescribed none really seem to have much effect.

How did you find out about RefluxUK?

Through information I looked up on the LINX® procedure

What was your experience on the consultation?

It was a great experience, I found Mr Boyle to be very easy going, informative and reassuring.

How did you find having the treatment?

The surgery was far less a big deal than I had anticipated. I was able to eat as soon as I woke up and wasn’t too uncomfortable.

What happened in the days and weeks after the treatment?

The days that followed were fairly pain free and the incisions were really small. There was a period of time around 7 weeks post recovery where I experienced a little bit of difficulty swallowing but Mr Boyle warns of this and is able to advise how to get through it. It was really quite minimal and he explains it's just part of the healing process which is obvious as it passed quite quickly.

How are you feeling now?

To be honest I forget I have even had had it done. I feel like the surgery completely changed my life – I could hardly eat anything prior to the surgery, was in constant agony and was utterly miserable with the thought of living like that forever.

Would you recommend RefluxUK?

I would without a doubt recommend this life-changing surgery.

Any other thoughts?

Please also refer to the post I added to RefluxUK Facebook page. I would send a copy but I’m no longer on it. I think it was around 3-4 months ago that I posted.
