What to eat??? Severe GERD symptoms!

Well, I called my GI doctor today and he said since I've already improved my diet and Pepcid didn't work for me and I have been taking a double dose of Protonix everyday for almost three months that there's nothing more he can do medically. He is referring me to a surgeon. I am going to go and keep an open mind and find out what my options are. Maybe he will say another medication will work better. Maybe he'll give me surgical options. Maybe he will tell me about the endoscopic procedures. As the nurse said to me......I am under no obligation to do anything, I'm just going in to talk to this doctor and see what he says.

Audrey S. What do you know about the Nissen fundoplication? Is it a risky surgery? I know all surgeries have risks, but is this one especially risky? I'm nervous about the thought of any surgery, but I want relief so badly! As I type, I am having horribly sharp chest pain and I haven't eaten in hours. I have chest pain every single day. Everything that goes down my esophagus comes right back up. I never throw up, but the food/acid comes up into my esophagus and throat....after everything I eat. All I have to do is drink a glass of water and it's comes right back up.

I wish there was an easy fix! I'll keep you all posted on what the surgeon says.....I'm sure it will be atleast a month before I get in......you know how it is getting in with a specialist! Thanks for all your replies and advice. I will do my homework and make sure I know what I'm getting myself into before I get myself into it!
