Good morning. I'm having a lot of difficulty. I had the wrap done on 7/17/13. In the last week or so I've been experiencing stomach acid and heartburn. Recovery has not been easy - constant diarrhea, nausea, cramps, stomach gurgling - and now that I'm starting to feel acid again, I'm worried the surgery was a failure. I see my doctor on Tuesday but he's been less than helpful with post-op information. Just curious if anyone else had trouble with heartburn after surgery. I'm still taking a full dose if PPIs.

Welcome to the forum.  We have great resources at the top of the page and journals listed by 3 of our members that have had surgery.  I know you will being hearing from members soon but due to the holiday weekend things are a bit slow on the forum.
I copied the links to the 2 Nissen surgical journals, the 3rd surgery was a LINX procedure.
