I continue to experience post nissan problems. I had my surgery on Jan 6 which is a month at this point. After I dry heaved the first two weeks of my surgery the surgion had me take a barium swallow test which showed I had a motility issue and my esophagus was swollen. I was then good for two weeks and a half weeks with no dry heaving. I do have to say though during the two weeks and half of no dry heaving my stomach was uncomfortable I think I might have overstuff my stomach. From what I hear from others your stomach is smaller for up to a year after surgery then it goes back to size? Anyway about two days ago, I was very nervous eating dinner as I am still on soft food since I am on week five because of upper abdominal pain I was recently experiencing under my ribs. After I had the dinner after like five minutes I felt funny and I started dry heaving. I have been eating really quickly because that is how I was before. I was wondering if dry heaving can occur if you eat to quick even though I was having yogurts and choclate chip cookie and small plate of pasta? So of course then I was even more nervous having breakfast the next morning and I dry heaved after having two yogurts which I ate them quick. I was good with yogurts though for two weeks so I don't know what is going on. I spoke to my surgion and she told me to go to the hospital since I dry heaved that evening and in the morning.
I went to the hospital and they did a catskan of the abdomin and barium swallow test and everything was negative and it showed no motility any more. No acid reflux eithier. I was wondering is it possible the dry heaving started because the wrap is to tight or maybe because I ate to quick or that I was extremely nervous? I had problems for 5 months before the nissan fundoplication surgery where I was vommiting and nautious and the gi doctor said I had severe case of gerd after all the tests and recommended this surgery. I am just hoping it will work with the dry heaving. I haven't seen any improvements yet. If anything I think it is a step back right now. At least before the surgery I was able to have the foods that I knew I wouldn't throw up from which was a bagle in the morning, subway for lunch, and ravioli for dinner. Now I can't have any of that because of the soft food diet. I am trying all these foods that I couldn't have before the surgery because I would throw up. I am just concerned about the dry heaving. I just want this surgery to be successful. Also I still have this dry mouth that I got five months ago in August before the throwing up started. I went to a rheumotologist at the time and I was negative for autoimmune disorder and dry mouth expert said my stimulated saliva is good. I know I have dry mouth through because my mouth is always dry and I have a white tongue which used to be pink. Does anyone know if this surgery will help my dry mouth. I still take protonix and protonix side effects does not say you would suffer from dry mouth. Plus I had the dry mouth before the protonix. Thanks for any input.
