Next month, I'm having a Nissen and cannot wait, but am having some worrries. I had GERD as a baby and outgrew it, but last in February, it came back and has really had a negative impact on my life. I've got an amazing gastro (and surgeon!) who actually has the license to set up patients with Cisapride, and I've been taking that for a little over a month now but still have not been free of symptoms. My DeMeester score was 45 with reflux occurring 96% of the day. After having a barium swallow, Bravo pH monitor, and several more tests and scans, I am finally having a Nissen and seriously cannot wait for the reflux to stop. As excited as I am, I'm also getting a little nervous. I'm expecting gas, lost weight, and some pain, but is there any special pointers and suggestions from any Nissen vets? Just need a little reassurance :-) Thank you and I cannot wait to be part of the Wrapped Club smilewinkgrin
