Hello again. I will be meeting with my surgeon in about 3 weeks to set up surgery. He has told me that he will not do a complete wrap because I could not stay off my medications to prepare for the swallow study. I tried really hard but could only make it one day without nexium....cannot see making it the entire 6 days. When I went off nexium, my blood pressure sky rocketed and my heart started beating intensely.
 
Has anyone here had a partial wrap versus the complete wrap. I wondering what are some of the pros and cons. During our last consulation, the surgeon did say that the partial wrap may not last as long. I just hope the partial wrap works for me because I would hate to turn around and do this operation again. I appreciate any words of wisdom.

There are several here with the partial wraps and doing very well. Most had a partial because of a swallowing issue of some type. It's probably a good idea to go with the partial wrap without a manometry to see how things are working.

Take care,
Bill

Bill,

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I am so ready for this procedure to be over with so I can start the long path to recovery.
