Hi ladyinred,
Welcome to Healing Well!  There are quite a few here who've had a Nissen fundoplication, welcome to the club!  Here are some links that may be helpful as you:
Here's my post-Nissen early recovery journal...
I had the surgery a little over three and a half years ago for lung problems due to reflux.  I've been very happy with the results.  Be sure to read the last section of my recovery journal, as it provides some suggestions for when considering surgery. 
Glad you've joined us!  This is a great place for support and information.  I found it shortly before my surgery and have stuck around to help others the way I was helped.
Good luck!
