Hi Folks,

I'm in my early 50's and recovering from a Nissen which was performed on 13 October 2009. I was fortunate to have the top surgeon for the procedure in the city and went into it with every confidence.

Now I'm over 2, nearly 3 weeks into my recovery and learning more & more each day. It's great to have such an awesome resource as this to learn from people who have actually been through it before me. While we're all going to react and heal a little differently, there's certainly enough commonalities to make it all worth sharing.

Thanks for being here,

Susan

It's my signature because I have the greatest sister in the world and I wanted to share the sentiment with others who feel the same. Works great for brothers too!

Thanks Kitt,

Is it possible to send a private response to someone? couchtater replied to one of my posts and rather than take up space in the forum I thought it would be better to reply privately.

Thanks,

Susan

Would love to have the name of your doctor.  I may be headed down that route ...altho just starting my journey...but having lots of problems.  I live in Vancouver, BC so quite close to you.

 

Thank-you

I'm all the way down in Georgia. My doctor is a five hour drive further south of me. I think that maybe too far for you. :)
