esophageal peristalsis disorders with anti reflux esophagitis as the mucosa,the radio asked me to stop all PPIs because i dont have acid reflux,but paraesophageal reflux its due to the wrap.before the surgery i did not have any motility problem or esophagitis he ask me to go meet my surgeon as soon as possible ..i am very depressed he think maybe the wrap is too tight also still swelling...he also ask me to take anti hypertensive medication until i see my surgeon Monotildiem 200 because it helps the motility until the surgeon make a distention by the endoscope ..Denka Bill dave anyone can help??!!

Big breath and try to believe that it is a good thing that you have some answers to your issues. 
 
You have a right to feel anxious but remember to stay in the moment and don't let the anxiety take over your life.

Picturing positive outcomes can significantly reduce apprehension, which can lead to increased levels of confidence and an overall elevation in mood.

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) with pneumatic dilation is the standard endoscopic therapy for patients with your disorder and can be performed on an outpatient basis.  You will see your surgeon soon and hopefully things will be resolved so you start to feel better.

Gentle Hugs,

Kitt

Hi Soliver,
I'm glad to hear that you've finally gotten some answers as to why you're struggling so.  That's what I suspected...that a tight wrap was the culpret, and the "reflux" feelings were a result of food getting hung up at the wrap.
 
I wouldn't worry about the motility issue...my guess is that your esophagus is struggling to try to get food through the wrap and it's messing it up.  Hopefully once you get your wrap loose enough to allow food through more freely, the swallowing will become more normal again. 
 
As Kitt so wisely suggested, take a deep breath and try to relax.  Worrying right now can only make things more difficult.  You'll go to the GI doc or surgeon and get a dilation, which is not all that uncommon.  It may take more than one, since they'll want to gradually increase the looseness of the wrap.  Hang in there.  They'll figure out a way to get you straightened around.
 
Good luck!
Denise
