On dexilant now and not as much pain in stomach. Had gallbladder removed 25 years ago. Had hpylori at one point, also have had adhesions removed that caused total bowell blockage. But unlike others I have gained weight 15 pounds. I quit smoking over a year ago thinking that was causing the hoarseness and cough. Diagnosed with bile reflux four months ago. Was told to lose weigh but I eat small portions and I am still gaining. Spicy foods don’t bother me nor does garlic or onions my triggers are coffee , chocolate, popcorn, pork, lunch meats and alcohol. Leaving off the alcohol does not bother me. But giving up chocolate is horrible.
