I am a 28 year old woman who has suffered from GERD for 2 years now. I have recently gotten married and my husband and I want to start a family. My major concern is that my acid reflux will become even worse if/when I become pregnant. I think I am going to have the laprascopic fundolication done, but I'm not sure if I should do it before I plan on having a family of after.
Is there anyone out there who has had the fundoplication and then gotten pregnant afterwards? Was the reflux o.k. during the pregnancy? Or did it come back?
I want to have the surgery because I don't want to live like this anymore, but am very apprehensive at the same time. I also understand that you cannot vomit after it is done -- so what is a pregnant woman to do if she gets bad morning sickness?
Any information would be so greatly appreciated.
