I had Nissen surgery last Oct. The only real symptom I had was a cough. However, after loads and loads of testing, it showed that I had reflux and this was causing my cough.
The cough is so much better. Sometimes I still cough but it is more of an allergy cough and I can live with that.
After the surgery and leaving the hospital I was on full liquids. I tried to not eat more than a cup full at one time and ate every 2 to 3 hours. My recovery went really well. No feeling of anything being stuck. My surgeon did a loose wrap and I am not having any problems. Off all meds for reflux.
The only problem that I have now is gas. At night especially I seem to have a lot of gas.
If someone out there has had the same problem, would you let me know how long it lasts. I take gasex and it helps.
