Hi Rita -
The definition for IES (intraesophageal reflux) seems a little confusing.
"Intraesophageal reflux (IER) was present if any portion of the barium bolus traveled cephalad immediately after initial descent to a more proximal anatomic division of the esophagus prior to passing through the LES during the initial swallow (i.e., movement from the thoracic esophagus to the aortic esophagus). If dry swallows induced IER after administration of a bolus, the movement as a result of a dry swallow was ignored. Thus, a swallow with any element of IER was considered to exhibit IES as well. Gastroesophageal reflux was defined as any bolus that initially passes across the LES but travels cephalad back across the LES. " http://www.hindawi.com/journals/grp/2009/965062/
Maybe the wrap is a bit tight and keeping some food from getting past, but it's way too early to determine that. I certainly would NOT get a dilation done for at least a few months - until all swelling is gone. It would be awful to undo tightness and then have the wrap fail for being too loose.
It's common for surgeons to prescribe PPIs for at least a while. I'd make extra sure not to eat within at least a couple of hours of bedtime.
Have you started eating fairly hard-to-swallow foods like beef? Maybe back off the diet a notch to see if that would help.
To help figure out if you have a food trigger or type of food that doesn't go down, you can keep a food journal. Logging everything you eat and drink, the time, and any symptoms will help.
Welcome to the wrappers.
