Hello and welcome to HealingWell and the Wrapped Club. I am an honorary member of the wrapped club as I have not had the Nissen but I did just have major surgery so I understand post-op extremely well. During my surgery a small hiatal hernia was noted but nothing the surgeon was concerned about.
I truly hated the dry mouth and because I had respiratory failure after the surgery and was on a ventilator I could not get anyone to understand all I wanted was a wet sponge to clean out my mouth.
My best advice to anyone post op is to stay well hydrated as I did not do this as well as I should have and had some complications after discharge from hospital.
Keep on making progress and give yourself plenty of time to heal. I am 4 weeks post-op and doing well.
