Welcome to Healing Well.

I am recovering from 2nd redo. My first redo was perfect and until I had an esophageal tear I would still be doing great with the first redo. In order to repair my esophagus the things that had to be done destroyed my redo. I had it redone again on 8/24. My redo was almost 2 years old and was functioning great.

Do you know if your surgeon has much experience with redos? I found the redo recovery to be the same as the first nissen, except I already knew what to expect since I had already been through the recovery.

Take care,

Thanks Bill, im from the uk and its difficult to find out about surgeons over here, i do know that my surgeon has dealt with alot of problems in this area including oesophageal cancer etc. I will be seeing him in november so will ask how many redos he has done. Thanks again Spanna x

I will have to have one next month. Mine slipped, so I guess it was too loose. I am trying another Dr. I can eat anything now, as long as I take Prilosec, but I burp up foor constantly.

Wishing you well, and me too. I thought it was a mere day surgery, and didn't know about all the inside healing going on. Wonder what this dr. will say about that.

I'm looking at my 4th nissen. The first 3 were done by the same surgeon, he said it was too loose so he kept tightening it. Now I see a specialist and I guess my wrap is in really bad shape. He said he will probably have to do a complete take down and redo. The recovery was the same with them all. Good luck!!

Hi Spanna,
How are you getting on?  I just saw your note and the date, so figured you mught be closer to a conclusion.  I am in a similar boat to you, though not sure my wrap was that great to start with, though I think I did make things worse through exercise.  I am looking at a redo later this year, also in the UK.  Where are you based and who was your surgeon?
