I start feeling like nausea and bitter taste 3 weeks post op..my surgeon said there is no link between that and the surgery..before surgery i did not have that issue..The GI asked me a barium test and abdominal echo..while another GI sais its due to the wrap still swelling..anyone has an answer?

Hi Solviar,
I see you're still struggling.  I'm sorry that you have to go through this, but it's for a good cause.  Once the healing is complete you'll be free of reflux.  I agree with the GI who suspects swelling is the issue.  Keep in mind that it takes 6 months for the majority of the healing to occur, and a full year for the rest.  You're still at the infancy of your recovery.  It just takes time.
 
If your wrap is still swollen, and presumably is also fairly tight, what's happening is that you're still getting some residual food sitting at the wrap site.  That food ferments and causes pain and something akin to reflux.
 
Unfortunately it's just something you'll have to deal with.  Presumably your reflux was pretty bad or you wouldn't have had the surgery, so in the end you'll be glad you had the surgery.  It just takes time.  Patience.
 
It will get better!

Hi Soliver,

I wouldn't worry. I am at 14 days myself, and I've felt all kinds of sensations. I was worried for a bit, I wrote down everything I had been feeling and discussed it with my surgeon. He explained that since he had been in there moving my stomach, stitching things up, the body just doesn't understand what has happened and it takes a long time for it to return to normal. During that time, you can feel all kinds of sensations, and you shouldn't worry at all. It's normal. He told me he thinks by the 6 week mark I will be feeling better than I have in years, but healing will still continue after that.

He was very reassuring, and since that talk last week I have felt much more at ease, and I do much better at ignoring every little odd feeling I have. I'm just going to relax and focus on recovering and celebrate every little success during the process (like moving up to eating mashed potatoes, yay!)

Remember, this was not just a little routine surgery. It was a big deal, major organs were moved and modified. Your body is going to take a long time to get used to the changes. In the end, it will be worth it all.

The bitter taste might be a sign of LPR.

How I can describe it is more of a vapor form of acid or stomach contents coming up. I would hope Nissen would eliminate that. I hope it does for you.

I'm trying to pursue the LINX in hope it can stop the vapor.

Soliver, are you back on PPI's.
As I have stated a couple of times, my doctor told me to stay on those and only when feeling better to start lowering the doze.
