Wow, I am so sorry to hear of your sons serous illness.   I do not have any experience with this procedure at all.
Perhaps someone else in the forum will have.
Please know I will be keeping your son in my prayers.

Very sorry about your young kid's terrible disease... Here's a paragraph on it

d: The laparoscopic approach for antireflux surgery is becoming the gold standard for children with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) when surgical treatment is indicated. Preferences for a partial or a full fundoplication still relate to the surgeon's choice and experience.

FYI, there are some after-symptoms of lung transplants that you should know about.

Here are the list of symptoms that might cause you discomfort a few weeks after the lung transplant surgery is complete:

- Rapid weight loss
- Chest discomfort
- Chronic dry cough
- Weakness or feeling of fatigue
- Shortness of breath
