in 2011, I had a Toupet fundoplication with a hernia fix and it provided hell on earth results for me and may have been done wrong and/or I couldn't handle it so in 2012 I had wrap undone and another hernia fixed which if the wrap was doing what it was supposed to, I shouldn't have needed or had another hernia or repair; I've also got 5 back hernias with 1 laminectomy of the 80s; after my undo, I went onto live a much more normal life eating a little more but still living on mostly shakes/puddings and being a single mom and having soooo much fun with my son and we even travelled to Disney and the grand canyon; well true to form with hernias, mine is back with a vengeance with intolerable nausea, queasy, acid, tummy moves, gag, choke, cough, hoarse and very irregular; i'm in central new York state looking for the right doc/surgeon for me cause now i'm super sick again with zippo life quality and that just doesn't work for me or my son; any advice or direction is greatly appreciated; thx. for reading and I wish u great health and a fun summer.  confused

Hi Nancy,
Sorry to hear you're having problems.  As I said in my email to you, this issue is best discussed with your GI doc and surgeon.  The problems you're having are way above my ability to be of help.  Recurrent hernias is a unique problem, and requires unique treatment.  I expect your surgeon will have a suggestion as to what your next steps should be.  I'm sorry you're still suffering, and I wish you the very best!  Hopefully you can be referred to an expert who can help you work though these issues.  I know how hard they have been on you.
Take care,
