Laryngopharyngeal reflux
I am suffering from LPR from the last 3 y ears.  My throat feeks chocked almost all the time. One of the doctors i consulted has recommended me the surgery but other doctor has asked me not to go for it as it will not do much good. I don't want to go for surgery myself. Is there any way we can treat it?

Hi, Most of the people with LPR respond favorably to a combination of lifestyle changes and medication. Those who fail medical treatment or have anatomical abnormalities may require surgical intervention. Kindly consult ENT surgeon...
