Acid reflux and GERD after an esophagectomy

My wife had an esophagectomy for Stage 2b Squamous Cell Esophageal cancer. She had chemo and proton radiation before her surgery. Her path reports thankfully are clear. One of the biggest issues however in recovering from her surgery was having awful acid reflux every night about 3:00 am. She slept using a wedge pillow and was told not to eat within three hours of bedtime. After two months of having terrible GERD I read a post from a lady using the name (evergav) about her husband having the same issues and she decided to research how to lessen his night time reflux. She discovered that by eating a red apple before bed would help reduce acid in his stomach and make it more alkaline. (Red apples are sweeter and work better than yellow or green apples that are more tart) After I read her post we tried it and it works! Praise God. She hasn’t had reflux since and it has almost been three weeks since. If you or a loved one is having nighttime GERD or acid reflux try eating an apple before bed. What do you have to lose?
