Acid Reflux and IPF – should I have an operation to cure acid reflux?
Acid Reflux operation and IPF.
I was diagnosed with IPF 3 years ago. For many years I have suffered an acid taste in my mouth, which is worst at night. This has now been finally diagnosed as acid reflux. I believe that this is the cause of my IPF, due to the effect of the acid vapour on my lungs.
I am considering having a surgical procedure called a fundoplication, which the consultant claims will cure the acid reflux.
Please has anyone undergone this procedure? What was the recovery like and did it have any effect on the IPF?
Thanks for your help.
