I had a Laproscopic Nissen Fundoplication back in 2005 and, for the last two years, I've been having consistent and intense pain. It oscillates between gas-pressure/esophageal pain, occasionally radiating out toward my ribs and soforth.
So far, barium swallow tests and endoscopies have suggested the Nissen has held up very well.
They did tissue/blood tests, which came up with nothing.
A digestion test showed there's no signs of "dumping" or abnormal digestion.
The endoscopy didn't show anything too irregular, either.
I even tried specialized (gluten free/dairy free/soy free) diets to see if anything was aggravating me, and those didn't offer any help, either.
I'm very active and fit at 28. So far I've been on a muscle relaxer, 4 or 5 different varieties of PPI's, an antibiotic, and a couple steroid sprays.
I've seen two separate doctors, neither of whom can come up with any results or new plans. A surgeon once suggested a dilation, but the gastroenterologists didn't think it was warranted; indeed, sometimes the gas seems endlessly ripping from my throat, and other times I can hardly burp any more than one dry, harsh belch.
I'm not sure what's happening, but if anyone else has advice or knows of any potentially unusual post-nissen happenstances, I'd be interested to hear it; the internet hasn't provided me with much through my Google searches.
