Can anybody offer me some advice. I had the open fundoplication about 8 weeks ago and am suffering severe pain where the surgeon made the cut especially in the middle. I am being told it is the nerves of the muscles but nothing seems to be getting any better, am on medication for the nerves to see if they start healing.
I know I have a lot of scar tissue since i had the keyhole fundoplication about 6 years and everything fell apart which is why I had to have the open version this time. When I had the keyhole version it last for about 6 months then I had acid back and was on oemperazole for the last 6 years, in May this year the reflux happended again.
Any advise would be appreciated, I cannot sit very long in a chair before my wound starts burning inside so therefor cannot get back to work. I know my abdominal muscles are not working very well coughing is difficult and cannot lift my left leg it all seems to be connected.
