I had the operation two weeks ago and all is going great. No reflux, I can burp so no bloating and I can eat what I want. I have to eat a little slower though, that's the only noticeable drawback. I'm back at work and I've started gentle exercises with no problem! I still have minor shoulder pain (they pump your stomach full of air b4 the op and this is a side effect of that,) but I'm sure that will pass very soon.
So far I can only report postive. BTW, I had a partial 180 wrap and not the full wrap that is most popular in the USA (I'm in the UK.) The partial wrap is much less prone for uncomfortable post op side effects and is nearly as successful in sending reflux packing!
