Well I had my EGD. done and told me the wrap and hernia repair were o.k. but that my throat is irratated and that I have chronic gastritis(swelling of the lining of the stomach) this is the same problem I had pre fundo. The upper G.I showed slight reflux so I'm still on H2 blockers Pepcid, Zantac. They also kept me on carafate. I seem to be having alot of what feels like reflux or heartburn but no acid feeling so not sure,I'm truly hoping it's just a fussy esophagus.
I have to say I'm frustrated at this point and don't know if I should give it time to settle down or go to my G.I. for ph test or what, he was not too happy I had the fundo.
It seems everything I eat bothers me and it's driving me crazy since I THOUGHT I was going to be okay at my 7mo mark and boom 11mo everthing goes haywire. I'm getting this tightness along the esophagus,down to the area of the wrap and than a twisting sensation and tightness wrapping across my middle. I't feels like my stomach is in a knot. This happens about 15min after I eat and can last for hours and hours
I have read on other forums recovery can take up to 2 years on some people..YIKES I had Breast Cancer surgery on 4-6-10 and than 33 treatments of radiation, than like some kind of dummy I have fundo surgery and hernia repair 12-6 10. I just wonder if that has an impact on my recovery,none of yhe Drs will give me a good answer..soo here I am
Thanks for the vent Julix
