I had the nissen and hh repair in august. My surgical journey continued and I had a one sided tonsillectomy and a fair bit of tissue removed from my airway (nose) on Tuesday. Short version is I convinced the surgeon to do two ops at once, and I bled a lot, which means I swallowed a lot. And continued to do so for a few days. I've been having nighttime reflux since the op, despite ppis. Nothinglike before but still unpleasant. Man I do not miss that. I am sure once my system adjusts and the gunk works its way out I'll be ok but it reminded me just how bad gerd can be, and how lucky I was with outcome from my nissen.

Hoping for some sleep, and wanted to share. I have renewed gerd sympathy today!

Hi Kevin,
Sorry to hear you're having some problems.  Hope the gunk clears soon, and your pain subsides completely.  It's good to be reminded why we had this surgery in the first place, isn't it?  I would never want to go back to where I was pre-op!
Best wishes,
Denise

Hi Denise

Thank you. I wasn't at all prepared for any reflux this time, but I guess that blood and whatever in anyone's tummy would act as an irritant. Last night was bit better. It'll pass, it is sore but having recovered from the wrap......

IT's good to be positive about the wrap. I hope that attitude helps anyone facing the op, I totally agree with you- as most often do!!!

Mind how you go

Hi Kevin,

I would allow for some effect from the drugs you will have had too - surgery under GA usually involves muscle relaxants, plus extra time lying down, plus whatever they may have washed your sinuses and tonsils with! Hope you bounce back soon,
