I may have posted this a while back, not sure.  I had the Nissen Fundo about a year and a half ago. I never had much of a protruding belly, but since the surgery it really protrudes and is difficult to deal with.  My GI even said I seem to have a lot of bloat.  He did a scope to see if I was wrapped too tight, and I wasn't.
I for sure get a lot of gas build up.  For those that have been wrapped a while, how do you deal with the bloat?  What are some ideas centered around what to eat, how to eat, what to take for the bloat etc.?  My GI doc says all the anti-gas items on the shelves are nothing but placebo. 
It is so hard to find clothes that fit right.  I have to go up a size and then I look unkept. 
Any advice is appreciated!!
Thanks - Virgo

I would have this evaluated by a second surgical option to ensure this isn't a complication from the surgery.  Typically, pain should not be present 1 1/2 years after the procedure.  If not, I would assume that a repeat endoscopy has already been performed as part of the GI workup.  

If negative, other tests to consider would be a 24-hr pH study to ensure GERD isn't recurring post-surgery, as well as a gastric emptying scan to evaluate for gastroparesis.  Gastroparesis is possible in the setting of stomach distention.  

I would obtain another GI and/or surgical opinion and discuss the possibility of the aforementioned tests.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
