Hi guys I am a month post op, during the last couple of days my reflux have improve a lot, i don't want to say everything is ok yet because who knows what can happen tomorrow, my only one problem is the "hunger pains" that I started feeling it a week after the surgery, with the solid diet they have improved but still I can't be without eating more than 3 hours or I am going to start having it, it is like a painful cramp in my upper stomach that comes and goes, it only gets relieved when I eat, I also get it with a lot of belching. I have ready and haven't found anybody that has experience this, I am one month post-op and I am still experiencing it, I didn't had ulcer or anything like that before the surgery, however this sounds like the pain of an ulcer, but I am still on PPIs, have anyone experienced something like this after this surgery, I have read a lot about complications of nissen and I can't find anything that even look like this. I have appointment with my surgeon next week, so lets see what does he say.

It might be trapped gas and eating releases it?

Hi Joy, eating is the only one thing that releases it, as I said before, I have to eat every 3 hours to avoid it.
Best Regards,
Laura
