So sorry to hear that you're having to go through all this. On the positive side, you now know what the problem has been and are moving on. That's a very good thing. You know we'll all be here providing support as you go through the process.
That error is exactly the reason that we're always emphasizing the importance of selecting a surgeon that is eminently qualified and highly experienced in doing Nissens. It's definitely a learning curve, and while I know that they have to learn somewhere, I don't want to be the one who's the practice subject.
Nissens are a real art form, and they're not as cut-and-dried as some surgeries are. Of course another piece of the puzzle is extensive testing prior to the surgery. Sadly, some go through the surgery only to find that their problem is unrelated to their reflux, or that motility issues make their wrap unadvisable.
Whatever...it's all behind you now. Be sure that whoever does your work now has done many, many, many procedures. Yes, you're back to the beginning of the process, but you can look forward to a positive result and a more normal recovery.
Bill, one of the moderators here, had a first wrap that was done incorrectly. He's been busy with his daughter's softball schedule so he hasn't been around much, but if you start a thread requesting his input, I'm sure he'd notice it and share his experiences. Here's his explanation of what his experience was like:
Be happy that you've found out what's going on and can get it fixed. I'm sorry that you had to go through all this, but if you can get things revised and begin a normal recovery process it's all for the good.
Hang in there, my friend.
We're here for you.
