My Sister is Having Surgery Tomorrow

My sister has acid reflux. That means that acid from her stomach is coming up and burning her vocal cords. In retrospect, she can barely talk and this has been going on for three years. She is a singer. For three years she has not been able to sing, let alone talk normally.

At first, the doctors did not know what was wrong with her. A year later we figured it out. Now she has a vocal choach, and many other doctors and appointments she needs to go to.

Tomorrow she goes in for a surgery that will change her life around. They will be putting in a magnetic ring in the area where the stomach connects to the throat. This will close the flap to her stomach, ensuring that no more acid comes up to her cords anymore. It’s a simple, noninvasive surgery.

That doesn't make it less scary. So I'm hoping she makes it out of this okay and that maybe someday soon I can hear her sing again.

I'm very sorry to hear that. I would know how you feel. I have been through surgery a few times, but it all ended up okay. :twismile:

I hope the very best for your sister and that things will go just fine. If you're really worried and need anyone to talk about it, I'm right here for you buddy. :kindness:

Stomach acid comes up to your throat and burning it along with your vocal cords.

Scary

Thank you guys! 

Yeah it's pretty crazy what can come up out of nowhere.

I'll probably post again after the surgery saying how it went.

Thanks again:mlp_rarity:
