Nick’s surgery was done by Mr Nick Boyle, leading LINX surgeon and RefluxUK Medical Director. He commented:
'When I first met Nick (van Eede), like so many patients with “LPR” he was approaching his wit’s end. Singing is his life and the problems that he was having with his voice, which for most people would have posed no real problem, for him were potentially catastrophic for his career. Similarly, he had no heartburn or other typical symptoms of reflux and the first challenge, as always, was recognising the likely nature of the problem and having the right tests available to be confident that surgery would help.
We’re so delighted that Nick has done so well after his LINX surgery and that he’s been so generous in sharing his story. He’s become a great friend and hearing it again when we talked was fascinating; we always learn so much from listening to our patients. We hope that others with similar problems will find it equally interesting’
