A member asked:

I have been on proton pump inhibitors for 10 years or so, is it time to consider surgery?

Depends: If you are on the ppi for acid reflux and doing well, then probably not. If you are not getting satisfactory relief, then that is an issue and certainly antireflux surgery is an option. Discuss it with your prescribing doctor.
