Sorry you are having so much trouble with acid reflux. I have vomitting from reflux at night but only once every couple of weeks so it is managable. I do take several medications and sleep on an incline to help. I would recommend that you check out www.eccafe and the acor list group that is linked from that sight. It is an esophageal group but there is lots of discussion about reflux issues, helps and treatment. Many people on that list had cancer at the esophageal junction. The list group is helpful and compassionate. There is also an acor list group for stomach cancer, though it is not as active. Be persistant with your doctors and let them know how frustrated you are. There is bound to be some help somewhere. Hang in there!!
