Default Cant stop crying!!!

Just got back from my surgery consult, I'm having a procedure to fix my GERD. One of the side effects is never being able to burp or throw up again. The doc said drinking carbonated beverages will be VERY painful because of it.

Why? Why? Why?

I'm seriously considering just dealing with the chronic heartburn and everything else associated with it.

Have you looked into real ale?

Damn bro, that sucks. Maybe it's time to get into mead and wine? Or possibly, you could brew still beers?

I am with Shooter. Try a few real ales. See if that gives you any discomfort before you decide to throw in the towel.

Sorry to hear about your issue btw. That is rough. Even if beer was not a factor. That just plain sucks.

I'm sorry to hear that bro. Like others have said, maybe you should try mead or wine. I'm lifting a nice cold glass of still (not carbed) apfelwein in your honor.

I'd still have the procedure done.

GERD and Acid Reflux can lead into Esophegeal cancers.

Sorry for the dilemma man!
