Hello, I am a 25 year old male in NC, and I had the Nissen Fundoplication surgery on August 23rd, 2007. I had had many years pre-Nissen with severe reflux, heartburn, and more..
I felt pretty good (heartburn/reflux wise) after the surgery for the first month or two.. Then last few months, I have had the "feeling" of reflux/heartburn, and my surgeon said it may not be heartburn at all..
My wrap was tied loose to allow burping, which I think was the problem, because I figure if air can get up in my esophagus maybe acid can too?
I've had severe chest pains on and off, and a ton of abdominal pain that's random and horrible.. I've had numerous CT scans, Barium, etc and all comes out ok..
I am on Coumadin for blood clots from my surgery. Yes I had blood clots in my lungs, collapsed lung, and pneumonia 2 times since the surgery. I just don't know what to do, I am so stressed, anyone else have this surgery and have similar problems, current or past would be greatly helpful in knowing what you did..
