I know you are suffering with your recovery, but Jesper and Bill are both trying to keep some perspective in the conversation. You are having difficulty swallowing, which creates some real and painful problems for you.
That said, for many this surgery is a very big improvement in their quality of life. The recovery can be a challenge, but things get better, and they experience life without abnormal amounts of reflux, which makes their lives much better.
I don't know what your problem is, or why you had the surgery. However, I can say that many are helped by it, as I was. However long the surgery lasts it's worth the effort.(I also have read that the average is 10 years. More than one poster her on the forum had their surgery last nearly 20 years)
For many who face constant reflux (or other very uncomfortable and unhealthy side effects--in my case uncontrollable asthma), this surgery is a lifesaver. I will have a redo gladly whenever it is necessary. Hopefully my wrap will last quite a while, but when it goes, I'll be very happy to get it done again. I wouldn't want to go back to the way I was before my surgery.
I hope that your symptoms improve very soon, Soliver. I know how hard this has been. I'm sure that you will find a resolution very soon.
Hang in there! We're here for you.
