Has anyone had to have the 24 hour PH test??? Did it help with approval for revision?

I had a BRAVO test, which does the same thing but with a little capsule that is attached to the esophagus to monitor the acid level. I got approval for a revision, I don't know how much the test results had to do with it. My surgeon and I already knew I had GERD and esophagitis. The test did give them an indication how bad the GERD was.

Welcome.

I haven't had this test, but since it is a measurement of reflux and it turns out you have reflux then it's a good news, bad news situation:

The good news is reflux is a comorbidity so it will likely improve your case to insurance;

The bad news is you have reflux;

Good luck,

Tek

Ok. Thank you! I’ve already had other tests that show I have a hiatal hernia and reflux going into my distal esophagus. But my surgeon said it’s not enough. So now I’m doing the 24 hour PH. I’m praying this will get me approval.
