Has anyone developed an incision infection following the nissen? I am 4 1/2 weeks post op and one of my incisions is oozing yellow??? I was back in the hospital twice this week and am wondering if I picked up something while I was there.....UGH!

Hi Stacey,
While I didn't experience that, I've heard others who have described a similar situation.  Have you contacted your surgeon's office?  You should definitely not let it go with out a medical opinion.  Hope it gets feeling better soon!
Happy healing,
