Everything went great at my Post Op visit today. (I had a Lap Nissen on 5 Nov 08.) The doctor said that everything looked good; I feel well. The incisions are almost totally healed. He even said that I could start eating real food. Take it slow but even a tortilla chip would probably be okay; as long as I chew-chew-CHEW! He said I should probably avoid things like broccoli for now. This is good. So far so great. I was in excellent health before the surgery which I think has helped a lot with my recovery.
No reflux that I've noticed and I am healing. I occasionally feel some tightness but overall I don't feel bad at all. If only, I could have a beer but I'll wait a few more weeks for that. Cheers! There is hope!
