New to posting here.
Have the Nissen procedure scheduled for Feb 07. I have grown tired of waking at night with acid boiling out of my mouth and nose. I have taken Protonix 80mg daily for eight months and it seems I am a non responder. I really think this is my best chance to get this resolved. I am anxious for my recovery period more than the surgery. I had an ICD placed for my CHF and cardiomyopathy and was able to recover pretty quickly and no problems with pain. I pray that I will do the same with this procedure.
I have been reading this board for the last week. I know that I have one of the best surgeons going into this. Anyone have any useful tips with easing through recovery? I walk daily and will be back to this ASAP. I know that following the food plan set by the doctor is important.
I am a believer in "what you think about, you bring about" so I am only thinking positive.

Sumner,

I recommend you stack your kitchen with soft foods and liquids - just make sure to get the nutritious ones. You will not be able to eat that much in the beginning so you need to make sure whatever you need give you good nutrients and vitamins. I would buy good protein shakes, greek yogurt, even baby foods. You should try them before the surgery to make sure they don't cause any problems with your stomach - you do not want any of that after the surgery. You should also ask your doctor for some anti-nausea medication to take just in case you need it. Recovery may be slow and you may be in pain first few days, especially from the gas they pump you with so walk and move as much as you can - it will help get it out. Also, don't try to eat too much or any solid foods too fast or it will get stuck and you will be in a lot of pain. I am sure others can provide more advise - as long as you have a good surgeon you will be fine. Please post if you have any questions. Good luck.

Luke

Thanks for the info Luke. I have made some broths and put them to freeze until after. Some creamed soups as well. I was thinking of stocking up on some Italian Ices as well. Never thought of baby foods.

Yeah baby foods are good for you after surgery - lots of nutrition in them, just try some because not all of them taste good lol. Protein shakes are also great.
