i am having trouble navigating chats etc. not use to using computer for social stuff. just use for work and basics. But by time you read this you may be over your surgery. i too am having this surgery in april. same with gtube placement , only my doc. is keeping gtube in place for 8 weeks to form internal fibrin around sutures that will hold my stomach down in my abd. cavity to minimize need for future revisions. surgeon and gi doc both assure me that burping and vomiting will be resumed if i feel the urge. but if i ever vomit it will be very much projectile type. i am a registered nurse and have suffered with gerds and hernia since 1987. i too am nervous, any surgery like this is major stuff. wish you all well. i am also anemic.
