Had pre-op now and just found out I also have a hiatal hernia as well as a non working oesophegous. Did not have the hernia before, but at least now I know and it will be sorted at same time. I have to admit that although on the outside I am good, inside I am stressed. Anyhow it is now two days away and I have to say I am looking forward to moving the box of lansoprazole off the bed side table and into the cupboard. Surgeon suggests the hernia is just a side show but has also said no more serious weights, so guess cardio is the way. Will post a recovery journal.
Message to all posters concerned about
the Nissen go for it if recommended as I have had enough of waking with a start because I have the contents of my stomach in my mouth. Some people have redos, like me, but for the majority it is good.
