I have my laparoscopic nissen fundoplication scheduled on December 17th and have been stressed out of my mind this past week. I have had a major surgery before, so I am surprised that I am stessing out this much again, but I also have a ton of other things going on in life that are all stressing me out. Starting this past Monday, all of my symptoms that I used to have stayed the same but I started having very different symptoms on top of what I have been used to. On Monday I woke up with this extreme pressure caused by bloating that I had never experienced before. It ended up getting painful enough that I had to spend Monday night in the emergency room. I wasted 5 hours of waiting and testing there, but I did get a prescription for a GI cocktail, which has been helpful to take.
Since then, I have only gotten more stressed and have started getting these spasms that feel like they're happening in every single organ below my neck. Esophageal spasms are one thing since they tend to be fairly small for me, but I've been getting spasms in what feels like my stomach, my intestines, and I don't even know what other organs might be involved because I simply can't tell where it is coming from. Last night when I was trying to fall asleep, there was literally so much shaking that I couldn't tell which of the 5 locations that was shaking was my heartbeat. The most frequent spot I can track is on the left side below my rib cage, and it has been having spasms once every minute when I am feeling stressed. Surgery is coming up soon, but is there anything I can do about these constant spasms?
