Hi all, I am two weeks out from my full lap Nissen (5 Nov 15) and found out this morning I have to get my entire wrap redone. It will either be wrapped a little looser, or my surgeon will do a 270.
The issue was I just couldn't swallow--anything. Even water would get stuck, and be very painful as it trickled through the junction. Don't even ask about food-I've not been able to advance past the liquid stage; but I can't even take pills that have been chopped into fourths. My surgeon, who is amazing and has been very attentive in my recovery had me come in for a barium swallow this morning and it revealed that it's just too tight.
I'm just feeling a little down because the past two weeks have literally been for nothing. All the time I took off work; all the recovery; it's all for nothing and I have to go through it all again. :/ I know it's for the better, I do. I'm just bummed. Hopefully this one works out, fingers crossed!
