I suffered from a Hiatus Hernia and GERD so I had the Nissan fundoplication on the 16th May. At first I felt instant relief, it was fantastic and the consultant told me to come off all my medication. Two weeks later I ended up back at the doctors because I was suffering from terrible reflux. My doctor put me back on my PPI's full dose then around 8 weeks later they decided I was ready to try and cut down from 40grams to 20grams.

Overall I would say I have been feeling a lot better although I've never really had full relief from reflux. My diet has almost gone back to normal, I've even on occasions been able to drink carbonated drinks without too much gas. However on Wednesday past after a stressful time at work I decided to have a few glasses of wine to relax. Stupidity I know as I think I've overdone it. Since then my symptoms worsened and although the reflux is getting better I'm left with the occasional chest stabbing pain and earache both of which were persistent symptoms of my hiatus hernia and reflux.

I'm so worried the wrap has failed and its all my own fault for drinking the carbonated drinks and wine.

Can anyone give me advice on whether they think I should be worried. Also has anyone else experienced the same thing.

Thank you cry cry cry

Welcome to healing Well and the Wrapped Club!

You are still very early in recovery. I would back off your diet to soft foods for a week or so and see how things go. This recovery takes a good 6 months to a year to show final results. When ever your wrap gets irritated you will feel the sensation of reflux. Baby your stomach for awhile and stay away from the carbonated and alcohol drinks for a couple months.

Take care,
