I had a very similar issue with my first Nissen. I posted a link to my journey over the last few years.www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=45&m=2337138
I am a bit worried and confused. You aid the surgeon removed part or your stomach and esophagus then reconnected it. Then you say you want to do a manometry and see what the LES pressure is. I assumed from the first part of your post that this is what they removed, for what reason I have no idea though.
If you read my journal you will see it took me almost 3 years to find out what was wrong with mine, done wrong the first time causing the junction to be pinched off. Granted I wasn't nearly as bad as you, but had to use some type of dressing to help things to go by.
I went for a 2nd opinion and was referred to a great surgeon at a teaching hospital that finally figured out what was wrong.
I am wondering if you had gotten a 2nd opinion before having the 2nd surgery?
