Glad to hear you're doing well! That nurse sounds horrible. Linda is right...many of the nursing staff in the hospital aren't familiar with the do's and don'ts of Nissen recovery. If it's bothering you, why not call the hospital and report your experience. Hospitals are very competitive for patients now, and a poor experience with a nurse reflects badly on the entire hospital. You might be able to help another Nissen patient by setting that nurse straight.
Be sure to compliment the nursing staff that were helpful and kind to you. That's what I'd do...give them a call and get it off your chest. If you call, they're sure to know that many other people have felt the same way, but not bothered to make the call. You're doing the hospital a favor.
Just my opinion!
