Tell me about it. I know exactly what you mean. Like you, I'd spent many years suffering with GERD--in my case creating very unhealthy lungs--even being hospitalized for GERD induced asthma. It is hard to be sick for so many years, and those of us who come to this surgery with that type of history are so anxious to have it work, that the recovery is a scary experience. Every "heartburn" feeling we get creates a fear that our surgery is a failure. Believe me...it's an experience shared by most who have gone the surgery route. Very few go forward with this type of surgery without having a very good reason. Most who post here have suffered for many years with severe GERD symptoms.
Since most surgeons do not properly prepare their patients for the length and difficulty of the recovery, it comes as a shock to anyone who hasn't researched it thoroughly. I've been working on this forum since my own surgery two and a half years ago. In that time I've seen that most people are not aware of how hard and long the recovery is.
It sounds as if you are working on relaxing and going with the flow. Believe me, I understand the challenge.
Unfortunately, anyone with a fairly tight wrap will have some food and drink held back at the wrap site. Try to drink water after eating--it'll probably take drinking over some period of time to help all of the food through the wrap. At seven weeks your healing is incomplete, so there's a high probablility that your wrap hasn't settled properly into place yet.
Have you considered going to your GI doctor again and dicussing your fears and discomforts? He/she might be able to shed some light on the subject. From what I have heard there is a pretty fuzzy line between the responsibility of the surgeon and GI doc in post-op care.
Happy Healing! Hang in there.
