Hi everyone, this is my first post on this forum. I have been a reader for quite a while and wanted to share my experience with you and see if any one could advise me on some issues.
I have suffered from GERD for approx 18 years or so. Finally on Dec 4, 2012, I had surgery to deal with a minor hiatal hernia and of course had the NF.
It has been 7 weeks since the surgery and I am still having issues with gas and subsequent pain in the shoulder. It is better than before but I was wondering if this ever subsides. Also, prior to the surgery, I was not able to eat a whole bunch of foods which caused me alot of heartburn, two of which are toast and breakfast cereals. I have since the surgery consumed both foods and find that about half an hour later i have discomfort where the wrap is located. I have the feeling of "heat" which is i guess the acisd trying to come upwards but the wrap is blocking it. Has anyone experienced this? I don't think the wrap is being irritated by the food since this sensation only occurs about 30 mins after eating. I am very disheartened at this moment and would appreciate any insights or advice.
