If anyone knows what my motility study needs to show in order for me to be a candidate for Nissens Fundoplication, please let me know..........

Not sure what mine recorded. The nurses were vague, and acted like I was swallowing "wrong"........But, I have already had swallow studies, esophagrams, etc. and they showed no trouble with my swallowing.

They acted like the water I drank during the study just sat there and didn't go into stomach right away. I am guessing that my LES valve is slow. And, hopefully, this will allow me to be a good candidate for problem is that my GI is so unaware and takes forever to review my studies. I have a cancer doc that has also been reviewing and he has a different interpretation of every study than my GI does. Who to believe? Meanwhile, I have my surgery scheduled for Tuesday and my surgeon will not go thru with surgery until study results are in.............hoping my GI straightens up and gets moving in!

I wish you good luck! It seems like you need a new GI doctor. I would keep trying to get ahold of your current GI and if you have to keep calling to be annoying do it. It is not fair to keep you in the dark like this.
Diagnosed GERD, no other medical conditions (this one is enough)

I am sorry to hear you are getting the run around re your test results.  With your surgery so close I would contact your GI physician and let him know you need to know your results and what they are indicative of.  Be assertive in asking for what you need and good luck with the surgery if everything moves forward.
