Hi Alex,

I'm 8 weeks post op and have a similar issue. I've been feeling reflux for about a week and I'm really worried. Mine started when I got a cold and postnasal drip. At first I just figured it was mucus stuck in the wrap and then I thought it was just some stuck food. Now, I'm not really sure what to think and have an appt with my surgeon next week. Hoping that others reply to this thread to offer ideas/suggestions.

Did the surgeon offer any explanation or advise?

Hi,you,l need to give the surgery a bit more time as it can take 3-6 months to settle im afraid.This surgery has a slow recovery process.Food and liquids can sit a the wrap site and not clear properly and I can tell you that it feels exactly like acid reflux.
Hope things settle down for you soon! Barry
