I have mild acid reflux and I had to have some surgery. The Dr's wanted me to take a pepcid just prior to it. I didn't have any problems afterward from it. Just make sure you let the anethesia people know about your reflux BEFORE you have your surgery. Husband is an OR RN and said the docs don't want all that acid backing up in your throat, especially if you are intubated for your surgery (you probably would be for any type of major surgery with a general anethesia). Hope this helps

Hi MarkThey are doing a Tibial Tuberosity Transfer (TTT) to correctly realignment of my recurring patella (kneecap) dislocations by dislodging the bony attachment area of the supporting patellar tendon, a couple of inches below the kneecap - i.e. the tibial tubercle. I am on the waiting list but they said it will be before May 05 so just trying to get as much information on all aspects of it.I do still speak to Lexi and she is fineThanx for askingTake CareHugsEmx
