      Have you tried any merd for the reflux? Reflux is common with a number of cancer treatments, and is usually treated with meds to stop the reflux. In most cases the meds are successful? Have you talked to your Dr about this? Ask them for a perscoption or for a referal to a Gastroenterologist that treats reflux. Good Luck

      Is there a nutritionist where you get treatment? I had a whipple but not the refulx part. My tumor currently occludes the bile ducts, but doesn't sound as severe as your issue. Tthey recommend extra protein for me.
