I had the Toupet fundoplication and had no reflux at all immediately post-op. I was allowed to quit the PPIs after two weeks, but didn't need them anyway, and I was a worst-case beforehand. I'm glad I had the procedure that was chosen for me. I didn't have any esophageal pain post-op, only abdominal from having to have my stomach pulled down out of my chest (due to auto accident). It did take 3-4 months for everything to completely heal for me (senior citizen and pulling down stomach), but I am so much better now.
The only problems left are difficulty burping and the resulting gas in the gut if I drink anything fizzy or eat gas-producing foods. I didn't need sodas anyway, can drink orange juice at parties, and I didn't like broccoli or beans either.
