Actually Montana, yes. He is a singer and always had good breath control, etc., but right before (a few months) he had the procedure he was having difficulty finishing up his sets because of the breathing. I had forgotten that until you mentioned it.
I remember one night he was singing "My Way" by Frank Sinatra and all of a sudden he just threw the microphone down and ran off the stage into the bathroom and was violently ill. He said he just couldn't breathe.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised once you have this done Montana. He didn't even have any soreness from the procedure. Only good effects. He could eat without choking. No heartburn or indigestion. Breathes better, etc. As far as I'm concerned having to take one pill a day for the rest of his life is a small price to pay for the hell I saw him go through just one time from an attack. He agrees that this is true. I would imagine it will be the same for you. :wink:
This is really good news because I have also had problem with my breathing, especially when I'm working in the moist atmosphere of the lobster shop where I work.
Eating mints use to help and my doc says that's because pepermint relaxes certain organs, but it also triggers acid reflux, so while it was helping the breathing, it was making the reflux worse <sigh>
I don't mind taking a pill like that every day for the rest of my life because those pills are harmless and don't harm the organs like a lot of meds, so the only down side now is that doc says it'll be a while before I can have it done, due to the long waiting list and if I don't get the job I applied for last week, it's off to the lobster shop without my mints
Anyway, thank you so kindly for taking away my fear for the procedure and getting me to actually look forward to it :-D
