If you've spent any time around this forum you'll have read a post with me extolling the virtues of Carafate suspension. Here are a couple of the threads I found for an example:
I had the surgery for severe lung issues caused by my GERD. For me, Carafate suspension is something I always have on hand. I have a very reactive stomach and it gets irritated very easily. Since my wrap is made out of that reactive stomach, it gets irritated when my stomach gets irritated.
I believe that wraps can be undone during the very early stages of recovery, but since scarring is one of the things that strengthen the sutures and keep the wrap in place, once it is healed, I've never heard of one being taken down. That's not to say it can't be done. I just have never heard of it.
I'm very happy I had the surgery, and would have it again in a heartbeat if it became necessary. I couldn't go back to the way I was pre-op!
Good luck with your quest for an answer.
