I have had a Nissen Fundo six years ago. I have had problems with core exercise sense then. I can not do sit ups and I recently tried Yoga, it killed me. What happens is that I get a pulling feeling on my esophagus,burning sensation under my beast bone ,horse throat and refluxing with know acid coming up. I talked to my surgeon and he indicated that this has nothing to do with my Nissen . He sent me to a cardiologist and I past all of my test with flying colors. I also get the same sensation when I go boating when the waves are rough.

Can you please let know if anyone else has experienced these symptoms?

It sounds like you may have loosen some and the surgeon won't admitted it. Ask your GI to do a swallow on you to double check for leakage.

Hi dellie,
Welcome to Healing Well! It is possible that you're getting a small amount of reflux...not enough to create heartburn, but enough to bother your voice, and create some irritation. It's not uncommon for people to have a little reflux after the Nissen.

If you've had it for 6 years, it's possible that things might have loosened up a bit.
Joy's advice is to your GI doc, and see if he/she recommends some testing to see what's bothering you.
Good luck!
