Good luck with your appointment! After hearing your symptoms, and the fact that PPIs aren't helping, it sure sounds as if things are getting held up at the wrap site, fermenting, and irritating your esophagus. It feels just like reflux, so it's not unusual that it would be disturbingly like your reflux nightmares.
It'll be interesting to hear what your surgeon says.
Best of luck!
