I have a few questions, I had my surgery 3 weeks ago. Before the surgery, the Bravo done as well as the manometry. The Manomertry revealed some slight constrictions in my throat when I swallowed but it didn't seem to be an issue with the GI doc and he sent me to the surgeon. She made me go for a barium swallow and I had to swallow a marshmallow and do all sorts of positions etc.. This test also came up with some esophageal issues and I was told that my food and drink tends to float in my esophagus. She believed I would be okay and to surgery I went. My first two weeks were horrible. I couldn't swallow anything without pain and the feeling like it was just sitting in my esophagus. I was sent for a dialation and it did seem to help as I am now able to eat some solids. I am seriously worried that this is going to continue and I am wondering if I made the right choice in having this procedure done. I also wonder if anyone has trouble with bowels, such as constipation or diarrhea?
I am just so sad. I have dealt with GERD for 20 plus years and was so excited for relief and at this point I feel defeated.
Has anyone else experienced such issues after their surgery?
