Hi Alex,

You have GERD/ACID REFLUX, that's why you get a lot of Saliva and mucus.

Can I ask you, have you been drinking fizzy drinks alot even you done your surgery.

I also got white toungue the trush, I also got excessive saliva of GERD/ACID REFLUX.

What kind food do you eat normally? You need to look after yourself well, if I do Nissen fundo surgery, I will consider to chage my diet, I would never eat any fatty oily foods, fizzy drinks, chilly food. Try eating healthy way, by boiled eggs and chicken boiled or grilled and fish. Look at healthy foods that makes you more healthy for your body.

Best for you to go back to your GP Doctor and tell them about your problem and to recommend again for Nissen Fundo, but before that they need to see your problem by Endoscopy.

Welcome to Healing Well.

LPR can be tricky to get a handle on. though at 6 months many people do deal with an issue of food and such sitting at the wrap and basically fermenting. This causes reflux or LPR symptoms. It isn't normally felt as in the earlier part of recovery as food being stuck. It's more of food not completely clearing the wrap.

I've had this before and I made sure to drink a bit extra after I was done eating to hep be sure everything washed through.

This was found on me with a barium swallow, but they had to look at the very closely to see it there.

Take care,
Bill

Hi Alex,

Sorry you're still struggling. I know six months seems like an eternity during the healing progress, you do not have complete healing yet. Everyone experiences certain universal recovery symptoms, but each person's body is unique, and their healing is unique as well. Some people heal more quickly than others, so try not to compare your progress with others. It can be frustrating. You are you, and your body will heal in its own sweet time.

I agree with Bill's suggestion that your problem is still related to the fact that your wrap is tight, and not letting all the food into the stomach immediately. The fact that you can't burp is evidence that your wrap is quite tight. This will resolve over time as swelling continues to decrease, and the wrap loosens up a bit.

In the meantime, be sure to take small bites, chew, chew, chew, and as Bill suggested, additional sips of liquid after swallowing. This helps the esophagus to push things through more completely.

When food/drink/medication remain at the base of the esophagus, waiting to enter the stomach, it can create irritation, which in turn can cause increased mucous/saliva, as the esophagus produces it to protect itself.

If you've had an endoscopy and your surgeon says that the wrap is intact, it's highly unlikely you're getting reflux from your stomach, but rather are having a reaction to the remnants of food/drink/medication at the wrap site, waiting to enter the stomach.

Hang in there. It takes lots of patience and trust and you work through recovery. People like us with LPR symptoms have sensitive upper GI tracts, and healing takes even longer. It's hard to trust that it will all work out with healing, but do your best. Stay away from foods that are irritating (spicy, acidic, alcohol, etc.), and try crushing your medication and taking it with a soft food, rather than taking tablets that are more difficult to get through the wrap. It WILL get better!

Best wishes,
Denise

Don't feel bad about getting worried. We've all been there.

This recovery can be a long one and there bumps along the way. Another thing to try when things feel bad in there is to back off your diet a little for a few days. Eat things that are easier to chew to a liquid and such.

Also remember that foods like potatoes and soft bread can hang at the wrap really easily. With what all you have given us it really does sound like your wrap is still a little tight and needs more time to settle in. It's not unusual to have improvements at 1.5 to 2 years.

Take care,
Bill
