I had this procedure done on April 9, 2010. 4 days later I was having reflux again. I never quit taking my pills for acid reflux.
I had the Lap Nissen fundoplication done on 10/20/2010 my surgeon said the stitches were just hanging there.
He had studied both procedures and is not doing the esophyx surgery anymore because of too many problems with the surgery.
Hope this helps.
