Sorry Guys I know that this is a Plumbing forum, but I just want to show how
one little Injury can cause lasting effects,

Because of years of taking anti-inflammatory medicines causing bleeding
Ulcers I learned to eat even if I was not hungary at the time,

so over the years of taking anti-inflammatory drugs and eating without
working I have ended up where I am now at 380 lbs, and planning on
Gastric Bypass in Sept to lose weight, while I am starting up a Sales
business as a Independent Distributor for Electric Eel Mfg,
Gargalaxy and Tango like this.

@OpenSights if you gonna take those Ibuprofen like your doctor said, better listen to @MACPLUMB777. I'm second him, when I was injured my sister sent me Omeprazole to take it with the ibuprofen (she's a doctor). Ulcers is last thing you want. Don't ask me how I know.

Other than antibiotics on the very rare occasion do I ever truly follow a doctors orders when it comes meds. Tonight is much better, only 400mg first thing, then 200 at noon, 200 at night.

My mom lives in the land of fruits and nuts, which is the perfect home for her. I dont have much faith in modern medicine, and use it at a minimum.

Omeprazole Is what I have been on since the early 90's to prevent ulcers
last week I learned that a persented cough for last 10 years that no
Doctors could explain till I saw a ENT Doctor last tuesday and told me
that I have GERD ! which is the check valve that stops your stomach
contents from coming out your mouth with GERD when I lay down the stomach
acid comes up into my throat which causes the cough, so I doubled up on my
Omeprazole dosage which has helped somewhat

So Tues, the ENT Doctor, then Weds, the Stomach Doctor

Jerry has some good general advice about NSAIDS especially if you are self medicating with over the counter products, but keep in mind that most physicians actually do know a little bit more about medicine than most plumbers. We laugh at homeowners with no training who hack things up because they won't call or listen to professional plumbers. It's the same exact principle. There are some good and some bad physicians, just like plumbers. You can choose to be suspicious of that which you don't understand, but just remember how well that turns out for many homeowners. Some homeowners do skate by with whatever fix they finagle, despite their training or knowledge, some are very sorry for their choice. Same can be said about patients.

My touch screen isnt working so Im doing this by voice so Im sure theres going to be some typos. Back in 2000 I got a hiatal hernia and ended up having the leper scopic surgery also are commonly known as the wrap where they take your esophagus and put below your Elia LES and take the top of your stomach and wrap your esophagus making it look like a hotdog in a bun. About the only thing that I seem to help was to constantly eat to keep the acid at bay. I went from about 185 pounds to 235 which is not a good thing in the Marine Corps. Having that surgery is definitely a life-changing thing in many ways. You have to learn how to eat drink and swallow all over again even things like mashed potatoes go down they stop at that spot and you have to sit there and wait for it to finally answer your stomach.
