Bill had a redo. It sound feasable to be able to do.

Cowboy-
It can be undone, but not many surgeons are willing to do it. With your symptoms, I am not sure it needs undone as much as it may need redone. If you were a candidate for the surgery and you said it was good for the first couple weeks there might be that something has failed. If you have it undone you will be back to square one and that is where you were in search of a cure for GERD? Correct? If it is done by a well qualified and capable surgeon, this is a very good fix for GERD. But it does take some time for things to heal and during that time some very strange things can happen. Sometimes it feels worse before getting better.
What kind of symptoms were you having before surgery? Was it controlled by the PPIs?

Take care,
Bill

yeah thats the thing bill i trusted the surgeon too much .I was getting regurgitation and relux osophigitis on endoscopy histology ok.the bringing the food up was annoying that was all.The specialist said it wasnt good to stay on ppi for lifeand handed me the guff on nissen in which i read and couldnt get it out of my mind i needed it done far too much of a rush.In constant mental anquish prob didnt need op but believed specialist.Now only sleeping 4 hrs and have constant bitter taste  making me naseaus etc.Im thinkin if i could get a reversal done i will stay on pills for life or get redone???Where to from here??????????

Dear Cowboy,

I am sorry you are so upset but please take a deep breath and pull out of the panic mode. " Is this mistake going to cost me my life?"

I do not believe it will cost you your life and I woud bet that with the right Doctor you will be taken care of.  Look at all the surgery Bill has been through and dang it he is alive and kicking and will be for a very long time.  devil

In no way am I belittling your fear but I do think it may be time for you to get on a medication to help you with your aniety.  There are many choices that your Doctor can explain to you.  Do reach out to the professionals and advocate for yourself............get on a medication and perhaps even some therapy to help you get your thinking back in perspective.

Gentle Hugs,

Kitt

Cowboy-
Kitt can say it great. Please take her advice. Since you do have the appointment set try to stay focused on that. I am certain there is a doctor out there who can help you with this. Whether it be a redo or an undo. To help with the symptoms until them you might want to try some antacids or if you still have PPIs left you might want to take them again.

Take care,
Bill

PS. Normally I would have been on here last night when you were looking for us, but I had a bad night with this dang stent again and couldn't get to the puter, Sorry.
