Well, after 2 years of reflux hell I'm finally getting the nissen fundoplication surgery next week!  I've never been so happy to get a surgery done in my entire life.  It took me 4 doctors to get here, no one wanted to do the surgery on me because I had (?) gastroparesis...but strange enough, I got the test results back of a gastric emptying study I just recently had done and the test came back normal!  Well, whatever that means I am happy (i dont feel any better, but..)  because after 2 years of this agony and suffering with 24/7 reflux I am hoping i will be a free woman.  This disease is nasty nasty nasty...a question I have, how long does it take for throat ulcers to heal after surgery?  My throat is scarlet red and I have some lesions from the reflux...im scared they are never going to heal.  Has anyone had their red throat become pink again??  Please let me know, thank you

Gabbs,

I am so happy you are finally getting your surgery and I hope that it will increase your quality of life and make everything more pleasant for you.

I have not had the surgery so I cannot answer your question.

I wish you the best of luck and a speedy recovery.

Gentle Hugs to you

Kitt
