I am wondering what type of guidance surgeons have given concerning long term follow up after fundoplication. I had a Toupette Fundoplication done in July, 2011. Prior to the surgery I was having to have EGD every six months. After the surgery I was released from the surgeon after one month and he basically told me that I didn't need any long term follow up and to see a gastroenterologist if I had problems in the future. I'm just interested in other peoples follow up as I would have thought that a follow up EGD would be in order at some time.
