" Hi Couchtater and everyone,
I don't post very often anymore since I had the Hill repair done over one year ago. Couchtater, who is the doctor doing your surgery? Mine was DR. Aye at Swedish in Seattle.
I agree with Alcie that the surgery you have should match your individual needs. I had regular heartburn with a small 2cm HH. 80mg of Nexium a day plus 300mg of Zantac and the meds still weren't stopping my heartburn. I could have either procedure in my case but I chose the Hill by Dr. Aye. It has worked great for me. Contrary to popular belief, it's still not a good idea to vomit with the Hill either. It can disrupt the repair if you wretch too much. I keep a script of promethizine handy if I get the flu which I haven't yet. I also was able to do a baby burp the day after surgery. I do not burp very much and they are always very tiny. I did have extra gas in the beginning but now is normal.
The surgery did the trick for me. I had a bravo and upper GI after six month and no reflux. I am still doing well and highly recommend the Hill. Dr. Aye and Dr. Wright in Seattle are the two best known doctors who do the Hill. I flew from Florida where I live to Seattle to have this procedure done there because of my confidence in Dr. Aye and the procedure."
