If anyone has read my other threads i had the nissen surgery on March 26th and its been a nightmare since.
well its now almost 9 weeks and i'm having bad pain all day every day again.
On May 7th i had the endoscope procedure done again, said the wrap was fine etc. I tried to go back to work the folllowing day ended up going home early and taking the rest of the week off, I started to feel good by the weekend and i felt good for about 4 days, i mean really good, I also had the stomach emptying test done about a week after the scope procedure and my stomach is working fine.
Well then i went back to work on may 17th, felt good for about 4 to 5 hrs then some pain came on again, i took some tylenol and aspirin and that sorta suppressed it.
I tried to get more pain meds from the clinic but they won't do it.  I've been in pain everyday since last week and today its bad again.
Why would i feel good for 4 days and then suddenly feel terrible again?
Has the wrap failed? are the muscles still adjusting?
I dont' know what to do anymore.  I think i'm mentally losing it.
I can't stand living like this anymore.
I have the manometry test scheduled as well, was suppose to be tomorrow but now its moved to next wednesday.
I'm in such pain with no answers, nothing helps the pain, i'm talking the maximum amount of tylenol everyday and some ibprofen and aspirin here and there.
Just plain helpless.
I'm thinking I might need to go to the ER or Urgent care.

You have to look at what you did that could have started the pain up again after 4 days.. also, Tylenol, aspirin, ibuprofen.. these can also irritate the stomach especially after having the stomach surgery done.. I know you are in pain but, have you tried zantac or an acid reducer.. the surgery stops the reflux not the production of acid.
Just a thought for you to ponder...
I am fortunate..could this be causing the pain.. aspirin I had to take for my heart caused me pain and I had to take Nexium for a week.. then I had gall bladder surgery 9 months after the Nissen.. when I had the surgery done, the reflux and asthma and pain and everything else went away..

I hope everything works out for you...
