I use to have an account on here - I can't find my old posts, nor do I remember my username, BUT.
I had a nissen surgery done at birth because my esophagus wasn't fully developed or working properly. This was in 1990. Fast forward to 2009, and it was discovered I had 2 hiatial hernias, and the original wrap had let go. I had the hernias fixed, and another nissen surgery to re-correct what wasn't working.
Ever since the second surgery, I've been dry heaving and vomiting (only a viscous-like stomach bile) almost every day, and almost after everything I eat. I'm 24, female, and I have a few other health conditions: cerebral palsy, scoliosis, fibromyalgia...but nothing that stands out as a direct correlation of the vomiting and intense nausea.
If my memory serves me correctly, there's apparently still an extra pocket on the side of my esophagus where air and other things get trapped--and it is unfixable due to the extensive work that's already been done to the area. My descript
ion is vague, but I don't fully understand it myself.
I've seen one of the top doctors at the Lahey Center in Boston, and several of the doctors in my hometown--all to no avail. I've had numerous barium swallows, upper endoscopies, balooning procedures, anti-nausea medications, scopes...I've elevated the head of my bed, switched up my swallowing by tucking my chin or turning my face to one side, divided my meals up throughout the day and ate in small increments instead of large meals...
I also have uncontrollable air come up from my esophagus after eating--and it lasts for hours and hours.
Has anyone had this sort of experience?!? What can I do?
