Hello everyone, I am seeking advice regarding bile reflux. My mother had a radical gastrectomy about 7 years ago, at first she had a difficult time holding down food but had been doing alot better. The problem right now is that she sometimes feels a burning sensation along her asophagus, her doctor says its Bile, and she takes Carafate to keep it under control. It helps but still does not totally keep the bile under control, often at night she says she feels the same burning sensation come back. I am worried that this "burning" might be wearing away her asophagus, and I am wondering if anybody has any advice. I've asked the doc but he has no further suggestion beyond Carafate, does anybody have any ideas? I've been trying to find resources on the net for people who have had radical gastrectomies and their experiences, but so far have come up empty. Thank you for listening, and best wishes to all those other folks out there who are sick or suffering.
