Hello, I posted in a different thread explaining that I still can't eat normal foods - I was hoping for more people to reply about their symptoms / experiences with a failed nissen but it seems as though only one person posted. I just got done reviewing the "failed nissen" thread (the one that is 3 threads long and counting) and by the number of people that responded, I know there has to be more out there on this forum! I'm extremely concerned about the possibility that my nissen hasn't healed correctly or has failed all together, but I could really use your guy's judgment on this one. I have an upper GI scheduled for tomorrow - hopefully I will find out more about what's going on few days after, but in the meantime, can any of you confirm your pre-nissen revision symptoms?
A of the 7/8 week mark, I have had the following symptoms:
shortness of breath, pain in the left shoulder and under the left rib, after laying down for a period of time I get air trapped in what feels like my esophagus and I get a shooting pain in my upper chest that sometimes travels throughout my back, I can't seem to eat ANYTHING without it hurting in general - but yogurt has been the most comfortable food to eat up until this point (I've lost a considerable amount of weight for my body sixe because I haven't been able to eat much of anything), I've been having trouble burping on my own - after I do try to eat something, to no avail I get air trapped which sometimes makes me vomit...
Does this seem consistent with the number of people who have needed their nissen surgery revised? To be completely honest, I'm feeling about 80% worse than before I had my surgery.
Again, thank-you to everyone. I'm sorry about posting twice, I just really need some answers!!!
