Shore, I think everything always works out for the best. You soon will have your procedure done ( rhyzotomy) and your shots and it sounds as though your fiancรฉ is there supporting you. Yes things sometimes seems like it happens all at once doesnโ€™t it? But somehow we get through it all. Glad to hear that your internet is working again. Your heartburn can be brought on by many things ie; stress, diet, meds etc. minor issue compared to your other problems, Iโ€™m sure your doctor will address that at your appointment. Hope your week finishes well for you. ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ™

I'm glad you have all the scheduling done. It's been a pain in the neck, as they say for me trying to juggle all my appt scheduling around my hubby's job; I'm still not allowed to drive. He's an investigator and sometimes gets last minute notice for court appearance and then I'm having to reschedule. Thankfully all my doc office have been so understanding.

Hopefully your heartburn can be treated with OTC or Rx meds. I suffered for over 20 years, even 10 years after losing my gallbladder. A couple of years ago my GI doc found I had a hiatal hernia, which was pushing up on the stomach and keeping the acid backflowing into my esophagus. When they did an EGD (scope procedure) down my throat they found I have Barrett's Esophagus, a precancerous tissue change. So my GI doc did a procedure to remove the hiatal hernia, and a "fundoplication" to tilt my stomach so any acid I do have drains out easier. It has been wonderful not having to suffer GERD symptoms! I go back for a repeat EGD every 1-2 years to watch for changes in the Barrett's Esophagus, and have one coming up on 8/2. I'm staying positive!
Hugs love & prayers everything goes well for you in the test & rhyitzotomy, therapy, and with the acid heartburn! ๐Ÿ™‚โค๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒผ

I have had GERD in the past. It would keep me up at night all the time. Food/acid reflux all night. Was put on Prevacid. Helped slot. Like FlappysLady I had a hiatel hernia repaired and a GBP which eliminated my problem all together. Good luck on your upcoming procedure and therapy. I know you will do just fine. The Valium will help relax you. Take care!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜

Hopefully the Prilosec will help Shore. My doc told me not to lie down for 3 hours after eating, and it is helpful.
