What are peoples thoughts on a take down.I was not a good candidate I feel and had no acid reflux just food regurgitation and osophogitis and a small hh..Surgeon only did a scope and sold me the surgery plus I had other mental issues goin on .I had 180deg anterior fundo.I now have acid reflux on 24hr (usually after i eat)and closing los valve but on the weaker side.With a take down would I be put back to the same as pre surgery or is acid reflux a certainty now.Would the los be weaker now some cutting around there has been done .Thanks .

Do you have a strong swallow reflex? Maybe you need to be tighten to a 270?

Hi Brian,
I'm glad to see you back on the forum. I always worry about you when you're not posting. As I said, it's really too early to even know if you need a redo or "take down". You're still in the beginning stages of recovery, and still have a ways to go.
I'm sure you'll start getting some responses to your question soon. Hang in there, friend!
