Well haven't been on here in a while, hope everyone is doing well and getting support here as I know I did when I had my Nissen Fundo in 2009. After throwing up twice my wrap has went up in my chest and I have a hernia. My new surgeon says that everyone needs to throw up sometimes and he has found that a partial wrap works better, so I am scheduled for a redo on March 13. I would appreciate everyone's prayers for he said he wont know until he goes in that he will know if he can do it laparoscopic or have to make an incision in my side.

Thanks,
amo or mechelle

I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I am facing some issues with my wrap as well. I am finally seeing some relief with Ativan. I think it may be spasms that I am having, which in turn causes issues. I hope you do well during surgery and have excellent follow-up care. Take care.

Thank you! I am glad the Xanax is helping your spasms. I have those once in a great while. When I first felt it, I thought it was my heart. I am starting to get a little nervous about my redo operation. I had my first Nissen in our small home town hospital, but this time they are sending me to the city to a very large hospital to a very prominent surgeon! How long ago did you have your wrap?

Thanks,
amo

Mechelle-

It's probably a good idea to be seeing this surgeon. Redoes are tougher and need by someone with a lot of redo experience.

I had my 1st redo in 2009.

I did much better the 2nd and 3rd time with the recovery since I knew what to expect.

Take care,
Bill

Mechelle-

My last one was done open, but with the incision from my sternum to my belly button. I have had a thoracotomy when my esophagus tore and much prefer the belly incision. Is your surgeon a thoracic surgeon? They usually like to go through the side is they have do it open.

As strange as it sounds, my easiest recovery was with my open surgery. Though it was 6 months after my surgery for the torn esophagus, so maybe that had something to do with it.

I hope they figure something out soon for you.

Take care,
Bill
