I had my nissen done on 7/6/12. about
3 days after, I started noticing the burning throat and white tongue (had the throat burn prior but NEVER the white tongue). Since that day, the white/burning tongue has gotten worse. I went through a 14 day course of Diflucan (PCP diagnosed me with thrush) with no change at all. I now also have pain in my chest (behind breast bone), and symptoms that literally mimic acid reflux. My symptoms were NEVER this bad prior to surgery and I feel as though I'm far worse off. I know it's my 4th week of recovery and it's still relatively early, however, I'm getting worse, not progressing. Any comments, shared experiences, etc. would be greatly appreciate.
