I had my fundo 18 months ago and I still get reflux. I think it is called silent reflux when it affects your throat. I had a Barium swallow test and it came back negative (no reflux) and the wrap is intact. I tried going back on PPIs and it did not help. I have resigned myself that I will have to live with this affliction for the rest of my life without help.
I continue to be on a GERD diet; no caffeine, chocolate; citrus, spices and fatty foods.
I have also consulted a renowned gastroenterologist and he indicated that besides PPIs and diet nothing else can be done.
Roger D, sorry to hear you still having reflux.
Did you notice if there was less silent reflux after the surgery?
Did you have a impedance test post op to confirm if the reflux was above normal?Not to sound heartless or rude. But I was the one who started this topic and am also still having reflux after fundo. So I don't feel comfortable when someone comes in and show concern to someone else and ignoring me completely. I do feel sorry for him too as I am experiencing the same problem, but I believe you shouldn't be ignoring the topic starter completely too.
