“I recently (6 months ago) had my gallbladder removed and about 3 months ago started having really intense reflux. My GI doc says that he has seen a lot of cases in which people start having this complaint after having their GB removed. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

Prior to my GB surgery, I had no issues with reflux whatsoever. My endoscopy was clean too. Right now, I’m having pretty much 24/7 reflux with really bad globus sensation. I’ve been started on prevacid 30mg once a day, which seems to be helping hit-or-miss style. I have intermittent nausea too, but my main worry is that I’m doing damage to my esophagus…. At this point, I’m just worried that I will have to deal with this problem the rest of my life! Any suggestions would be welcome.”
