 Hi everyone, just a small update on my redo from a full nissen to a partial one.
 Im at three weeks and all is good,just left shoulder pain after eating or drinking which I never experienced in my first recovery.I think its wind related as I feel bloating aswell but the main thing for me is that foods are going in ok where as before I felt as strange pressure at the wrap.
 No reflux and I cant believe im saying no medication! Hope this lasts!

So glad to hear you are doing well!
Were you having swallowing problems or some issue with esophageal motility? is that why you had to have a redo?

Hi Stephaniejean, yes,i had a bad time after the nissen,surgeon didn't carry out manometry before my op.Had to go overseas to find another surgeon who discovered I had a motility problem,he redone my wrap to 200 degrees. I cant thank him enough!

Hi Barry,
That is great to hear.  I knew there was somebody out there who could fix you up!  Every so often someone comes by the forum who either doesn't want to go through the manometry, or whose surgeon doesn't require it.  We try to emphasize the importance of having ALL the testing done, and I hope that others will learn from your very difficult and upsetting experience.  Thanks for sharing!
Happy healing!

Barry-

Great news. As Denise said, you are the poster child for why a manometry is needed before surgery. None of my surgeons would do any of my nissens without it. Even the last one where the surgery and stenting of my esophagus tear tore mine apart. He wanted to be sure I didn't have too much damage to my motility to have a full wrap

Take care,
Bill

Hi Barry,

I'm so glad to hear that this wrap is working better for you .. what an amazing relief that must be for you. I hope your health continues to improve.

Take care.
Symptoms of reflux started on 8th May after taking one Bisphosphonate tablet. I had never suffered reflux in my life before this date.
