I'm unsure of the status of my nissen fundoplication wrap I know I have been somewhat hard on it due to my weight lifting regimen, which i began in a timely manner after my 1st surgery. However, I believe now I have damaged my wrap during a set of preacher curls (now 2011), that night I had severe esphogeal spasms..and woke up with the dreaded hoarse throat and burning sensation that was all too familiar from 2008 before my 1st Nissen fundoplication. Now, it seems the wrap has come undone but I'm unsure.
These are my symptoms: Heartburn (not a bad as before, which makes me think maybe only have the wrap came undone), One of my biggest indicators that something has gone wrong is the fact that I can belch very freely now without the resistence that my wrap once provided making it difficult to belch at times. Loss of appetite..I'm unsure of whats happened here I know my 1st hiatal hernia wasn't considered large, and I'm due for a barium swallow next week. However, I can't find anybody to do an endoscopy until january.
Any thoughts on this, and anybody with any information on a redo would be greatly appreciated...I'm a little scared now.
