Hi all,

Has anyone had surgery to undo their partial wrap? I had it 5 days ago and am wondering how the recovery has gone for others. Mine had to be undone after a year due to my motility disorder and narrowing of the esophagus. Stretching did no good and I spent the last year in pain and not being able to keep much of anything down. So please if anyone has gone through this let me know how you did.

Thanks,
Lynn

I never have gotten off the PPIs. I had a hernia operation and gerd partial wrap a year ago. Both my gastro dr and surgeon knew the wrap may not work but I was willing to try it. The gerd did get better, unfortunately my esophageal motility disorder and narrowing of esophagus got worse which is why he undid it. I can eat things now after only 5 days that I could not eat before. But I still can't find anyone else who had this done.
