Sorry to read of you problems but it feels to me like a phone call to your Drs. would be wise at this time.  As each person is unique I could not try to guess what is going on with you so to be on the safe side do talk to a medical professional.

Hi johner,
Kitt is very wise in her recommendation that you call your surgeon's office.  If you're suffering the way you are, you should not have to wait another month to be seen.
Often when post-Nissen patients have nausea their surgeons put them on PPIs for a while to settle down stomachs and wraps.  Most of the time that's enough to get things calmed down so that healing can progress with more comfort.
I'm not sure what your surgeon told you regarding healing times, but around this forum we remind people that it takes a full six months most healing, and a year for the rest.  I found improvements into the second year.  While initial healing occurs sooner, it takes a long time for your GI tract to adjust and get comfortable with the changes.
Be sure that you continue to take small bites and chew your food to a liquid consistency.  That way part of the digesting is done and it won't irritate your esophagus, wrap, or stomach. 
Please let us know what your surgeon tells you.  Push hard for an earlier follow-up appointment.  They owe that to you.
Best wishes,

Thanks for your reply kitt and Denise.i got an early appointment to see my surgeons clinic but my actual surgeon is on leave for 3 months.
anyway im waiting to get the endoscopy done again to see what is causing the pain from my wrap,still get nausea alot from it and pain when standing or active,funny enough i dont feel a thing when im sitting down,only when walking around or active,my surgeons assistant told me the pain is from the wrap thats very tight that everyone gets nausea but you wont vomit,came close alot of times though,also said if i still getting the reflux that the wrap hasnt worked for me,dont think it has failed,was alot better than before the surgery,just the nausea weather i eat anything or not and the pain{irritation] when i stand up or move around,
