Hey there Tracks 83,
This is Kitt and welcome to GERD. I think if you read the threads and grab a piece of paper you could fill in the info your looking for as many of our members have written their journals re their surgery and how it all went.
There is a ton of valuable info already in the forum so please do dig in and read.
One of our rules includes "do not ask for personal information from others." Your questions could be considered as personal information as asking for names of Doctors and cities etc..............sorry. Just my take on the topic.
