Just a quick question. Any of you get shoulder pain post Nissen this long after? It's been over 5 months now, and every third or fourth night, the shoulder pain returns.
Is it unusual to get it at this stage. I haven't been back to a doc in over 4 months now as I am loving the freedom of not suffering and don't think it is anything to be concerned about, just an irritated Vegas Nerve as you all have enlightened me. I'm sure it must be something particular I eat, or if I overeat. But I just haven't been too bothered in diarising it all to see what causes it. Again, loving the freedom of choice too much to actually spoil it now worrying about what I should avoid. I'm thinking it could be red meat, fat... But I'm not sure.
I'm interested to know if any of you still have the shoulder pain fromtime to time, or do you think it too will pass for me as well. I hope so. But if this is the price to pay, I'll take the little pain over reflux anytime!
I hope you all are doing well, and if not, will hastily get better. Remember, there are experts out there that do know what they're talking about, so as long as you find one that you can trust, listen to them!
