Tshepi, it sounds like the reflux has caused ulcers in the bottom of your oesophagus and this may lead to problems if you don’t do something about it. You can either take drugs for the rest of your life or have the operation. A Lord’s procedure is usually done it you have an anal fissure (tear in the anus) because of a too tight anal sphincter. The best person to see about both problems would be a general surgeon. Good luck.
