  • I am in the same boat as you although I have only had them removed once...they grew back 3 weeks later. I have had the runaround and some of the docs still say they think it could be reflux. I am on reflux meds and had a bravo capsule put in my esophagus to test for it...came back very mild only on day two. Have they talked about sending you to Mayo Clinic? That is what they want me to do...
