You are one of those clear-cut cases that are made to order for a Nissen surgery. That type of reflux will definitely "stop and desist" after your surgery. If you have sustained damage anywhere (lungs, sinuses) it will take some time for healing to occur once the reflux is controlled, so be patient.
I know the feeling of just wanting to get the surgery and start getting better!
