Due to the increase in spam, your 1st post on the forms will be moderated so that we can check it is a valid profile.

Any that we feel are or maybe spam posters will not be approved. We will endeavour to be as quick as we can when moderating any messages.

Hi Linda

No, you should be okay as you have already posted more than 1 post. It's only new members that haven't posted before as we were getting new signups immediately posting 3 or 4 spam filled posts.

If you get any problems, feel free to message me with the title / time of the post and I'll look into it for you.

Regards
Richard

Hi Richard, I actually posted earlier on the 'Halo again' topic and I got a message saying that it was being moderated.  But I see that it is there now.

Thanks.

I am not a new member, I have posted before, but I posted a message on the 8th Dec and it is still "hidden". Why is this ?

Hi Alan,

Don't know what has happened to your post. As you have been "vetted" to ensure you aren't a spammer, your posts should appear automatically.

I suggest you try reposting it?

Hi Alan

I've checked and it looks like the You Tube link may have caused a problem - I've now cleared it and you should have no more issues.

Regards
Richard

Hi Peaches and welcome,

LINX looks a promising alternative to fundoplication as a less drastic way of reducing reflux.

In a fundoplication, the top part of the stomach (fundus) is wrapped around the lower end of the oesophagus to tighten the lower oesophageal sphincter. I had that operation nearly three years ago which stopped my reflux and meant I didn't need acid suppressants.

The LINX system http://linxrefluxsurgery.com/ uses a "bracelet" of magnets around the oesophagus instead. The attraction of the magnets to each other restricts the tube but opens as food is forced down by normal peristalsis.

However, currently LINX cannot be provided for patients with Barrett's.

**** NEWBIE MEMBERS ***** PLEASE READ *****

To further reduce the chances of spammers posting, all new members will be added to a group called "NEWBIE" members. Anyone in this group will need their posts approved before they are seen.

Once approved, you will be moved into the "NEWBIE PLUS" group where you can post freely.

I am currently working my way through moving genuine NEWBIE members into NEWBIE PLUS however I am checking each one with regards to posts, email address and IP address to root out potential fake account. This is taking time with over 800 members.

If you have posted as a NEWBIE, please feel free to post me a message on the messaging system and I'll respond as quickly as possible.

The held posts are normally reviewed as least twice a day but get in touch to jog me along if you want  Smile

Thanks
Richard
