Hi, want to know what i can do about the post symptoms that i am currently getting. I have gas most of the time and normally get pains especially in the afternoon. I am also always bloated, and i can't stand it. I say away from all gasy food and it still doesn't make a difference. It has been 7 months since i have had my surgery. This was my 3rd time having the fundoplication done, the previous 2 times were laposcopic where as this time was open. I never have these sort of symptoms after the first 2 operation, maybe that is why they only last for 6 months. I am unable to burp and just want to know if there is any sort of medication to help or even something herbal.

Check out the above noted website, it's by a guy called Gene, there is a wealth of information from Post Fundo suffers.  BTW, did you have a full Nissen wrap?  I've heard that the gas problem is much worse if you have that.  I'm due a partial wrap in 2 weeks, I think I have less chance of bloating and gas been severe, although my surgeon makes no secret that it's a distint possibility.

I just went through the same Procedure, the doctor said the first 6 months are the worse.  Per my doctor, the majority of the people who go through the procedure can not burt at all. He said I would hate him for the first 6 months.  Try writing down the food you eat, if you get gas afterwords, don't eat it again for 6 months, You may need time to adjust, or you could have food allergies like I do.  Tomatoes, peppers, garlic and heavy spices are universal trouble foods.  Expecially if you have been on the Gerd or ulser diets,  They are giving me trouble.  I'm still in bland food and Lord help if I use a straw to drink or eat to fast.

Hi all , Im post my 2nd Laproscopic Fundo and 5 months down the line im having a bad patch. All was very well up to 4 weeks ago...eating normally again ( bit bloated though). Now however somthing seems to have changed or shifted or come undone?!. Im having a range of symptoms that come and go...strong desire to burp to release gas which is somtime easy somtimes very difficult, Bloating, tightness, Fullness, burping while eating to move food down and possibly even the return of acid. ( im back on the Zoton just incase). Its wierd because somtimes im completely symptom seems to have a mind of it own. Not really sure why im writing this but im getting very depressed and having quite big mood swings. Ironicly the one thing i find tends to quieten down the symtoms a lot is a little alcohol..I think this is also pschological. Anyway Im trying to keep me chin up but i just feel so terribly alone with this problem sometimes. sad ..feel im stuck like this for the rest of my life. Sorry to be a misery but im keen to speak to other sufferers..any positives to cheer me up :-)

Hi guys, I'm sorry that you've had such difficulties post operation.  I've had my surgery two weeks ago and so far all is going very well.  I'm able to burp as good as before the op and probably for this reason I have not much bloating.  The only thing that I have to be careful able is not eating too fast as it gets backed up a little.

And most importantly I have no reflux and orange juice sure does taste good, I had forgetton!  I think that the fact I've had the partial 180% WRAP instead of the full WRAP is the reason why my symptoms aren't so severe right now.  Of course it's early days and the partial wrap hasn't got quite as high Reflux remission success rate, but it isn't far behind and given that the post op symptoms are much less severe on average, I'm glad I went partial!
