Just wondering if anybody has heard of the liver that grows and is stuck to the stomach?

I have no information re this topic.  Have you talked with a physician ? Let us know if you learn anything about this phenomenon.

Hi Kitt

Thank you for your fast response. Not sure if you are able to pick up on a previous thread where I posted my whole story about my nissen hernia op, 10 years ago I had my first nissen lap ending in open surgery as the doc said my liver was attached to the diafram, now not even 2 weeks ago I underwent a redo nissen only to find out that my liver is stuck onto my stomach, so the prof could not really do this op and I am now wondering if I'm the only case, would like to know more please if possible at all.

Thanks, Mousy

Did he mention scar tissue causing the connection?

During my last nissen, my surgeon spent an hour removing adhesions that was connecting my stomach, liver, esophagus, and diaphram. Maybe that's what they meant?

Hi All
I'm actually not sure what he meant.  I'm scheduled for my follow-up g-scope end March and will ask him all these questions.  What is very strange though is that with my first Nissen my liver was attached to the diapram and that was my first stomach op.  It is just so very weird and actually made me a bit depressed that he could not fix the valve this time and that it is a bigger mess now.
But if anybody hears more and or knows of more information, I really appreaciate the feedback, the more I can add to Q&A for the Prof the better.
