I had the Nissen Fundoplication Surgery on July 18th. I was released from July 21stto come home. ALL my medication was taken away. My nights are horrible but my days bearable. I started having serve amounts of acid reflux especially at night. Doed anyone have any solutions to the reflux and the horrible nights of not being comfortable? I never had the affects of acid reflux before now. I never felt the bloating or acid reflux burning in my esophagus. My acid reflux triggered asthma attacks. Actually, I was just diagnosed with the cause of my asthmatic attacks. My 48 years my asthma was considered allergy induced. So, if anyone could help relieve the constant acid reflux. I would be so grateful.

Hi Terrified

Don't be terrified, you've just had major surgery and are starting to heal.

It's unlikely the feeling you are having is reflux - most likely this is just your brain registering the post-op swelling and pain in this way.

What are you eating/drinking? A few days after your op you should only be on a liquid/very soft diet.

I've read that some people find sleeping in an easy chair easier just after there operation, so this might help get comfortable at night in the early stages of your recovery.

Hang in there, it does get better - I had my op almost 11 years ago and haven't regretted it for a moment.
