Happy October everyone! I'm new to the forum and glad to have found it! Here is my story in a nutshell
It has been exactly 7 years to the day since I had my lap nissen done. The first 5 years were fantastic! But the last 2.......Forget it. I have severe pain every time I eat.....no matter what it is. In the last 2 years I have had 4 EGD's, a colonoscopy, 2 or 3 barium swallows ( last one sent me to the er) gastric emptying study, small bowl follow through. First doctor kept telling me a different diagnosis every 10 days and I have a bathroom that looks like a pharmacy with all the meds he gave me that do no good or I can not take, he told me I had gerd ( again) eroding esophagus ( had beginning stages of barretts when last wrap done) gastroparesis (do not have) esophageal spasms, and hiatal hernia.....again. I begged to see a surgeon.....He refused...He barely remembered who I was from one visit to the next much less what was wrong me. Finally in Sept I found a new GI dr......who praise the Lord sent me to a surgeon!
I know a redo is risky....but I don't even want my stomach anymore.....I don't need it or the pain and suffering anymore....
I am currently waiting for dr to review records to make the surgery plan. Wait and wait and suffer and suffer......
