Hi Everyone,
 I am just wondering, has any 1 who underwent the nissan fundoplication surgery had Yellow stools. I have no diarrhea.Just yellow stools. I am thinking malabsorption but I want to see if my other comrades have had yellow stools b4 I run to the doctor with this complaint.

I have had this, but figured it was from not haing my gallbladder anymore. I think it started then. Some people also experience "dumping" after a nissen. Remember you stomach has had a good size of it reconfigured. Oh by the way...I got to take ashower a little while ago. That sure felt good, but wore me out. Not eating for 7 days is having it's toll on me.

Take care,

Since my fundo, I've experienced the gambut of colors and consistencies.  Not to worry.  Your GI tract was rearranged in a big way.  I'm still experiencing a wide variety...I'm sure it's very common--especially if you have a reactive stomach--which I do.  This too will pass, so to speak!
Hi Bill,
Glad you got to take a shower.  That is definitely a treat.  The not eating will pay off in a big way, once you're all healed. 
Take care of yourself.

H Guys,
The only dumping I've had was dumping gas on my husband.But we are 2gether over 20 years, so it must be love!! LOL I basically have slight constipation here and there but I've had complications such as this since childhood. I just was a little concerned.Now I feel better Thanx guys.
bill,Im so glad you had a shower cuz ya was smelling like sh** and gas from here.LOL (smile).Just kidding. Well the good thing is your wrap is healing find without any food.Your on your way to a steak dinner. I cant wait to sit down ,have a nice think steak, steak sauce ,mashed potatoes and corn on a cob.
Im going to my brothers BBQ monday and really have been eating very small,but drinking lots of water. I dont want to dehydrate thats for sure.I wanna indulge but will not overdue it. I know my brother will have a feast waiting just for me. He is my favorite of my 5 brothers.We look like twins ,Only I have bigger boobs.Its so funny cuz he tells everyone ,I have a twin only she has bigger boobs.We are 5 years apart.He will be 50 in September,so I am going to plan a big surprise for him. He has helped me mentally,physically as much as you guys and my hubby. When I woke up coming out the anesthesia,he was standing there saying wake up beasler you made it.
anyway,im rambling on here
