I know it's hard not to jump to conclusions and assume that both your Nissens have failed since you have evidence of reflux.
Not so fast. Having 2 surgeries in this short a span of time will make your recovery much more difficult and longer. It's not a bit uncommon to get some reflux during the early weeks/months of recovery. This does not mean that in the long run the surgery won't work. Taking PPIs during recovery can make a big difference in your comfort as you heal and recover.
Your GI tract has been doubly assaulted, so it is not happy. It takes a good long time to heal under normal circumstances. In your situation, be prepared for an even longer and more difficult recovery.
Please, please, please, don't fall into the trap of assuming that how you feel now will be how you feel after your recovery is complete.
Surrender to you recovery, and start thinking positively. Visualize a positive outcome, and turn your thoughts around immediately when they start going into dark places.
Rest, recover, listen to your stomach and be gentle with it. A lot of reflux pain during early days and weeks of recovery is actually surgical pain that is interpreted by the brain as reflux.
We're with you! Hang in there!
We'll support you either way...if you're scared and worried, we're here for you. If you're trying to keep your mind in the positive, we're here for you, too.
Very best wishes,
