Over the past week I've been having horrible stomach pains, although my eating improved a lot I could swallow again, but every time I eat I get horrible stomach cramps. So my surgeon did another esphogram to check things out and he couldn't see the wrap, it seems to have slipped......this was a redo, now I suspect they will have to redo the redo....I just want to cry back to square one. I hadn't done anything to cause this failure, has this happened to anyone else?

What happened to your first one to cause this redo?

I know people here that have had redos, but I don't know all their stories.

I'd be on the hunt for better surgeons, that's for sure!
