It has been a few weeks since I have posted as I try to get on top of this problem, and getting any real plan of action from the surgeon has been a journey that I think I could write a book about.
By the look of the barium swallow, it would appear that there is a problem at the hiatus repair. I am currently suffering badly from indigestion and hope it will pass quickly. I have taken nexium, have drank mylanta and have also had slippery elm to drink. I am not sure that it is reflux exactly, but I think it maybe food and drink fermenting in my esophagus. Boy this is really causing me grief and just want to able to swallow properly like I did before surgery. I had a repair in two places apparently and worry that the mesh is rubbing on my esophagus.
Has anyone had this problem before and has getting a stitch cut fixed the problem? My fundoplication looks kind of tight as well and I wonder if this is also part of the problem?
