For those of you who have been reading my recovery journal, I am currently at the end of week 4 post-op from nissan fundoplication procedure.
I had a 360 degree wrap and am hoping this lasts me for life. I am wondering though, if this does ever fail (I am 27yrs old so its quite possible), i would probably consider a newer type of surgery such as LYNX. Does anyone know if its possible for someone to be treated with LYNX say 20yrs after having a nissan fundop?

Good Morning,
As the LINX Reflux Management System has just been approved in USA therefore  I do not believe it is possible to answer your questions as there is not 20 years worth of data.
