I have scheduled a partial fundoplication for January, and would like to hear from some others who have had this done. I've found lots of people on here with the Nissen, but haven't seen much in the way of a partial. I had initially met with my surgeon to discuss the LINX, but after all the testing, that (and the Nissen) were out of the question due to a very poor motility in my esophogus.
I understand that some of the side effects are not as severe (or possibly not even present) with a partial wrap vs the Nissen. But, there are a couple of things I'm particularly worried about. First, I cough and clear my throat a lot right now, which I know is a direct result of the GERD. I am nervous about whether these things will persist after surgery, and if they will negatively impact my recovery time.
If anybody here has had a partial wrap, I'd love to hear about your experiences.
