On the 13th of March last year I underwent a Hiatal Hernia Repair and a full floppy. I was first tenatively diagnosed with a HH in about 1967. I read about the operation in those days and it was primative and very risky by modern standards. When surgery was proposed last year, I was unaware of the medical advances that have taken place in the intervening years. When they told me that it is now done laproscopically and was relatively less risky, I became interested. For several months prior to surgery I studied the HealingWell files for information and scoured other internet sources. When I first found this site I had serious misgivings about the entire procedure. Thanks to the moderators Bill and Dencha I went into the surgery prepared and knowing what to expect and with a large degree of confidence. I came out of surgery the same way--I knew exctly what the average patient experiences and what to watch out for. I have made a full recovery and am very happy with the outcome. Like most sucessful "Wrappers" I went through the recovery process and got on with my life.

Thanks again to the HealingWell moderators and "Wrap" veterans who contributed to my success. My E-mail address is in my profile if anyone wants additional information
