  • I am a 60 year old with GERDS post Nissan Fundoplication and still suffer from extreme regurgitation with aspiration into the bronchial tubes and lungs. The abdominal pain, bloating and weight gain increase the symptoms especially at night and early morning. I wake due to Hypoxia, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, and Restless leg syndrome, needless to say I am at my wits end
