Hi Sillylilly. I am scheduled for the floppy Nissen too. My surgeon said that this is the one he always performs nowadays as it means that I should be able to burp and vomit. (no vomiting allowed immediately following the op though!). In fact, all the surgeons I have spoken to use this method now. Also, if it is tight I would have more difficulty swallowing after the op (and with my decreased motility that would suck!).
I should get a date later today for my surgery!
I will be needing all you guys to hold my hand during the recovery period!
