Hi Alexis,
If you're worried, than it's a good idea to get some testing.  You don't have to worry about the endoscopy...lots of people have them after their Nissen surgery.  I did.
Sorry you're still feeling badly. Hopefully, you can get some help.
Good luck,

Sorry to hear you are still having issues.

A barium swallow may be a good idea. It's none invasive and can see what he wrap is doing and if you are refluxing.

Take care,
Bill
