Hello all! S/P total wrap on 3/17 after years of fighting horrible symptoms of GERD and a small hiatal hernia. The thing now that really is getting me, besides the constant gas is the mid sternal pain. I have to remind myself that I just had major surgery and I am sure there is swelling and healing going on behind the scenes! Any diet suggestions would be great too! Jello makes me gag and I am so sick of cream of wheat! Thanks!

You should have been given a diet to follow when you were released after surgery. Since they neglected that important item, you can google all sorts of post-fundo diets.

One good one is University of Pittsburgh's http://www.upmc.com/patients-visitors/education/nutrition/pages/diet-after-nissen-fundoplication-surgery.aspx
