i was reading your posts for quite a while and it`s bin verry helpfull.
first i might tell something about my own gerd history,12 years ago i was experiencing my first stomach pain and flair upps.
after i had my first scope a few years later i was putt on losec (omeprazol) and did well untill 2005.
it seemd that losec had stopped working for me and i tried many different ppi`s after that,none of them gave my any relieve.
so i started changing my diet to see if it would gave my any relieve,also took natural medicine,nothing workt for me.
i saw a GI specialist and done many testings,ph test,manometrie,barrium swallowing etc.
the test all came back possitive,i had severe reflux exposure and my LES was not working well,also i had a small hiatial hernia.
i was send to a university hospital where they offert me the new esophyx procerure,so i went for it because i needed help right away.
i was in a very poor condition from mailnutrition and weight loss,also i suffer from chronic fatigeu syndrom and was very weak at the time.
i had my procedure done in november 2007,unfortunaly the procedure failed and i was even getting more sick,also my gallbladder became chronic inflamed.
i needed help again right away so i did the testings again,the impedance test was positive again and my reflux episodes where even longer than before the esophyx procedure.
this time i needed a surgeon who knows about the esophyx and is verry skilled with the nissen fundo,gladly i found a surgeon in a foreign country who is very experienced with both the procedures.
so now i`m 7 weeks post op nissen,my gallbladder was also removed at the same time and i`m doing well so farr.
the only thing that is bothering my is that i still have chest pain,i hate that feeling!!
butt i don`t think it`s from acid exposure,i`m still of meds and think my symptomps should be much worse without the meds if it`s coused by reflux.
so i`m a little puzzeled by that,i saw that more people having the same problem after the nissen so i wonderd how,old poopie,bo peep and porcelain doll are doing?? can you also please tell me how long that your post op??
any reply would be welkom and i hope your all doing well.
