The Nissen wrap is doing great in my case. I read so much scary stuff that had happened to others, I really expected trouble with swallowing and burping along with much pain. Just not happening so far, I'm pushing it a little at 10 days on eating stuff like pasta and toast (chew,chew,chew). Nothing dangerous like cuts of meat. The only dumb thing was I was starving and did a peanut butter and jelly. Big mistake! It got hung up
and hurt a little. I sipped warm tea and worked on burping till it cleared after ten minutes. Hard not to panic but I knew it was just sticky peanut butter and kept myself from losing it. I'll stick to soft foods a bit longer.
I also quit smoking cigarettes and am using an e-cigarette instead.
Other than two incisions giving me grief from being bloated and pressing outward on the biggest of 5 holes in the middle left and right. I'm really pleased that I have not had complications from the Nissen and just moderate pain. The first day post op was a nightmare but it goes well now! -Craig
