Thanks for writing in.
The acid reflux
and belching are not related to intubation
or to the calcium deficiency
. It is an independent disorder which is caused when the acid from the stomach goes into the esophagus
. This is because the valve at the lower end of the food pipe becomes lax. This condition is called gastroesophageal reflux disease
The following would help:
a. Have small frequent meals
b. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and smoking
c. Have an early dinner. Have a cup of milk at night.
d. Elevate your head by using 2-4 pillows at night while sleeping
e. Take Tablet Prevacid OTC once a day one hour before meals. This will provide considerable relief.
Hope this helps
