Also, ask him if he does the surgery by laproscopy. And ask if he does a loose wrap. Tell him this is what you want and ask how many he has done this way. He shouldn't laugh. You need answers.
My surgeon was good and told me that he would only offer me a loose wrap and that he was very good at doing them. He offered this without me asking.
So now I look for the surgeon to be very confident.
The reason for the loose wrap is that it cause less swallowing problem. I had none after surgery, followed all instructions to the T. Only ate 1/2 cup at a time for the first 2 weeks and this kept me from having the gas pains in the shoulder that so many people talk about.
Tell the surgeon that you trust him but you need to be reassured that he has done many lapro surgeries and loose wraps.
Best of luck
