Hi Uncle Leo, I had my nissan almost 9 years ago and I developed the problem where my esophagus doesn't have the peritalsis like it should so have to drink lots of water when I eat to get the food down. Any way I have had my esophagus stretched several times because of stricture since my surgery. My doctor told me now I have to go to UW Madison or Mayo to have my wrap loosened as I can't go to the surgeon I had for my wrap because is not in my network any more. My GI Doctor thinks I need my wrap loosened and my lung doctor suggested the same route. My surgeon had suggested loosening my wrap a year after surgery but warned of more acid coming back up again so I just never went back. I'll probably put it off until I can't swallow any more. Barb
