Hello, even though I had the Nissen two years ago, I still read this site everyday I was one of those people that jumped the gun with surgery. I had silent reflux and was afraid of cancer. For the most part, I am okay, I have to remember to chew my food properly. What I do have though even after two years of surgery is GAS. If I don't eat within three hours or so, I get gas that builds up at the wrap site and sometimes can hurt....has anyone experienced this.
Last night at around 9:00 p.m. I noticed gas was building up at the wrap site but I wasn't really hungry and wanted to go to sleep. At about 2:00 p.m. I noticed that I started to get a pain (and I know it's gas), I got up and took a gas X and went back to sleep....all this time, I want to burp but can't because of course I am lyng down. I tried to get up and see if I can get the burp out but couldn't. I also noticed after a couple of hours I was woken up with what felt like gas coming up my esophagus but couldn't get out. It started hurting coming up....has anyone experienced this!!! My esophagus is sore today. I have noticed too that after this surgery, if I lie down, I cannot burp, I have to sit up, or sometimes if my stomach is empty, I can't either.
Any advice/help would be appreciated.
Denise, how was the vacation?????
