I'm new to the forum but had my BPD/duodenal switch 26 years ago and have had lots of heartburn/GERD for the last several years and so I decided to try to find people that are experiencing the same problem. I never had a problem for the first 20 years since surgery but the last approx. 6 years has been different. I have osteoporosis and so am leary of going on lots of Prilosec or something similar. I do take a Ranitidine at suppertime but otherwise take Tums on and off as needed. I was wondering what others are doing if they have the same problem and if we can have an endoscopy. I don't even think surgeons do my procedure anymore so I don't even know who to ask if it is safe to have an endoscopy.
