Patient stories

At 50 years old, Maureen was struggling with sleep and had a burning in the throat and constant ear ache. It stopped her eating normally and in the end had a major effect on her social life. She was on both over the counter and prescription medication but nothing was working. Maureen had fundoplication surgery which went well and she is now able to eat all the foods she used to love. “I'm feeling better now than I have for 20 years, now I don't need any medicine at all for reflux, and I sleep much better.” Maureen – RefluxUK patient

Testimonials

Anne was suffering with laryngo-pharyngeal reflux (LPR) and for 30 years had near continuous coughing, especially when eating. After being successfully treated with LINX surgery, Anne said, "I feel so much better. My cough has gone and people tell that me my voice sounds much stronger. I am back doing my hobbies again and sleep is better. The outcome is just what I was hoping and expecting it would be." Anne – RefluxUK patient
Rajiv had experienced typical reflux symptoms, including heartburn, regurgitation, poor quality of sleep, pain while exercising, and this had persisted all of his adult life. After LINX surgery, the improvements were immediate and have been sustained in the years since. "After my treatment I no longer suffer from any reflux symptoms." Some months later, Rajiv added, "I am still off the reflux medication. I eat and drink better and sleep is normal. In fact I don’t suffer from any symptoms now." Rajiv – RefluxUK patient
