Hi Marie,
Have your tests shown that your surgery has failed? When was your procedure? It wasn't too long ago was it?
Good luck with your search for answers!

Marie,

Hi Joy,
That is great new. Joy, I am very happy for you. Joy, do you need to be on med PPI?
Can you burp with Hill procedure?
Do you have stomach gas? I am not familiar with Hill.
Joy, is all your gerd symtom gone away?
Wow - that is so cool :D

Hi Denise,
I am going to have 4 series test coming up.
Denise, do you still have stomach gas at this point?
Do you need to chew your food into liquid format at this point?
Do you feel the wrap though? Are you on any PPI med?
Somhow, I am not getting any relief even with heavy dose of PPI and am on very very strick diet.
I am loosing weight quick because I try to be on strick diet - but not much help with the gerd.
If I want to, I can eat a buffee without any difficulty swallow or any degree of gas, but of course if I do that, I will get burn for all day long.... I don't have any degree of gas in my stomach.
I am just wonder if my wrap is too loose and break down.

I feel the wrap on my first and second week. Afterward, I don't feel anything.
I can swallow pretty much anything if I chew the food. I don't need to chew it into liquid format, just into small portion.
But if I swallow everything in big chunk, then I can feel the wrap.
Guys, if the wrap is tight, we have stomach gas and no reflux right?
If the wrap is too loose, than it leak and we have burn symtom?
I wonder what happen! They gonna put me back on the test.

Dennis and Joy, can the manometry test tell you if the wrap is tight or not?
Thank much, both :) And Joy - am so happy that you are feeling better & well. Hopefully- someday, I may joy you guy *Smile*
Take care.
Marie

Joy, do you need to be on med PPI?


I'm taking only one nexium right now and I'm waiting for the okay to go off of it.



Can you burp with Hill procedure?



Yes. I can burp. I just need to drink a glass of water to get it out.



Do you have stomach gas?



I did the first few days, but now it's intestinal gas. shocked



I am not familiar with Hill.



They wrap your floppy part of your stomach around your esophagus like wrapping your pant's cuff around your ankle. At least that's how my surgeon described it.



Joy, is all your gerd symtom gone away?



As long as I don't overeat or indulge in chocolate I'm okay. My four year cough is gone. turn



Right now I've irritated my diaphragm from spending too long bending over a pile of tax papers. I'm kinda spasmatic. No reflux just twitchy.



Can anybody tell me how much can you lift at four weeks? I don't want to overdo it. confused

I was told no heavy lifting over ten pounds for 4 to 6 weeks. But i don't have the strength to do much anyway right now. I hope you are doing better!
Just had the nissen surgery done 2 weeks ago today and am very unsure of what the future holds. I'm afraid of never being able to go out with the family and have lunch or dinner with them due to i cant eat hardly anything. Don't know if this is temporary or a life time change i will have to live with.  So far it has been very depressing and scarey for me. Any help or advice is appreciated.

Hi Joy,
My doctor told me not to lift anything for 4-6 weeks as plastormine put it. I was very careful & didn't even lift anything until 3months later.
Joy - don't lift anything - just take care - because you don't want to mess thing up...
My surgery probably was done too loose or slip - Well the coming test will probably give me more insight & a redo probably ...

plastormine, don't worry - many people able to go back to normal eating within time - but probably a small portion each time is an ideal.
Plastomine, do you have a lot of stomach gas though? My surgeon told me that stomach gas can last for one year and it will get better afterward...
After surgery, the best thing is to take care of yourself & get plenty rest. This is just temp so don't worry. But for now - be sure to heal - be on liquid diet for a few weeks - I am sure your doctor did told you that. Take it slow and heal. Eventually in time, you can move onto very soft food.
Within time, you can eat normal - but I don't know about eating a buffee - I wouldn't do it.
Other member on here will chipz in soon :)

I saw someone post on the net - that their nissen last up 30years - wow - that is so cool!
Take care.
Marie
