Hi All,
 
I am approaching 3.5 months post Nissen fundo.  A couple of days ago I had an exercise session and now have a fairly constant aching/sore feeling at the wrap site which then refers down the esophagus.  I am worried that I may have loosened the wrap/made it slip.  My surgeon said I could return to normal exercise at 3 months, including rugby (he said many patients resume normal activities much earlier but that he likes to be super careful and hold off until 3 months) so I assumed I was ok to be more active.  It wasn't like I was doing any heavy lifting, but I suppose I was activating my abdominals and stomach in a way they haven't been used in previous months.  It is a nagging soreness that won't go away.  Has anyone experienced similar symptoms post exercise? 
 
Thanks!

I can tell you that I wasn't allowed to work out for 6 months after nissen, but even then, I can remember thinking I damaged something; in hindsight, maybe I did!?!
When did this occur, did you try an anti-inflammatory..motrin perhaps?

I did a fair bit of internet research on activity post fundo. Nearly all the US hospital post fundo guidance says no strenuous activity for 2-3 weeks and no heavy lifiting (above 15lbs) for 6 weeks. Sexual activity can resume as soon as the patient feels up to it. So I feel like I have been the model patient, waiting for over 3 months. All I did was a gentle 15 min jog then later that day some activity "in the bedroom". Now I have some discomfort at what feels like the wrap site, which doesn't seem to be fading. I don't like to take anti-inflammatories as they aggravate my stomach. I am hoping these are just the natural sensations that come from a wound site that is adjusting from being very still to startng to move around again. Though I would be very interested to hear other people's thoughts/experiences!!
