I had nissen fundo six years ago. I recently went on a vacation and the flight was 6 hours long one way. I had problems with bloating when I arrived at my destination. After the trip home it feels like i have full blown Gerd symptoms again.

Has anyone else had problems with flying?

Hey Dellie,

I haven't had a nissen nor do I have typical GERD but I can tell you that traveling and change of climate can make you irregular and can tend to promote constipation. However, it's best to see a Dr. about this so you could assess if your wrap is still intact.

Best of luck

When I talked with my surgeon about air travel he said there were no problems with traveling (he even told me the day after I could go on a plane, just no lifting more than 20 pounds). Of course maybe it could be because of the way my surgeon does his NFs?

Airplane cabins are kept pressurized so that the rapid ascent does not cause the passengers and crew pass out from the lack of oxygen (that's why in the case of rapid depressurization in high altitudes oxygen masks drop down).

I agree with Faith - talk with a doctor to see what's up.
