What was happening was, over the past 2 weeks. I've had severe hayfever but in short bouts. Sneezing, runny nose and itchy eyes and ears. Well, I've never suffered with shortness of breath and hayfever but this last couple of days. I've noticed slight breathlessness, the need to take a deep breath occasionally. This on top of the humidity in the air doesn't help. I'd like to know if anyone else has had this problem post-Nissen Fundoplication(I'm 4 months on July 13th) I've been doing great, feeling strong and healthy. Eating well and drinking well. The ache around top of my stomach the site of the wrap but that's eased quite alot in the last few weeks. It's just this breathlessness what's kind of annoying and frustrating. I'v looked after myself really and my blood-count has shown because i had a kidney transplant when i was 17 and that's over 10 years ago now. If anyone can tell me about the breathlessness and if it's viable to have it after a bad week or 2 of hayfever or normal at 4 months post nissen it would be greatly appreciated, Admins,, anyone. Thank you. smile

Hi,

I am experiencing constant chest tightness and heavy ache at the site where i had my hiatal hernia repair, at first i didn't have this but it has come on 10 days in? has anyone experienced this after surgery?

Thanks

Hey!
I'm experiencing the same problem. My surgery was done on 1/17/17. I'm also experiencing a burning sensation in the main area where the wrap was done. I find myself having to hold or apply pressure to the area below my left ribcage when I cough, sneeze, and laugh. Breathing normally is also becoming complicated. I'm fearing the worse and hoping that I have not done anything wrong.😐

Sandy:

The best thing you can do is call your surgeon and schedule a follow-up appointment. It's best to discuss with him your concerns, since it's been over 6 months since your surgery.

Hi All

So glad to have found this forum and hope to both support and be supported by post Nissen fellows.

Had a hiatus hernia wrap redo op 3 months ago which appeared to be a great success. Reflux gone, chest pains eradicated and slowly returning appetite and normal food consumption. Great result I thought after 15 years of chronic suffering from GERD, Barrett’s diagnosis, a failled first Nissen 5 years ago.

I am now experiencing severe chest pain almost immediately after eating modest sized meals. Pain is very severe through my esophagus and mid chest rib cage area. Saw referring doc recently who is now treating me for esophagitis flare up! Wasn’t expecting that but I am seeking a second opinion. Intend to go back to the (very experienced) surgeon for a review.

Has anyone experienced similar and if so what was the outcome?

MrPerseverance:

If you are experiencing chest pains after modest size meals, I would go back to the soft diet for a while, and also smaller meals more often. Sometimes we try and go back to semi-normal eating too soon because we start to feel better. Three months is still really early in your recovery, follow your doctors instructions. But I agree, get a second opinion.

Thanks Sharon - yes. I think we can confuse getting better from Nissen op as eating as we did during the good times. That’s changed. Encouragingly I don’t get reflux after meals, just the immediate sensation of my esophagus hurting, possibly as food queues up to go down and pushes out.

Like you say 3 months is not long. Need to understand that.
