I had my 360 Nissen done on 9th of February mostly for LPR symptoms. PPIs mostly covered (but started to getting used to them), I opted for surgery mainly to not being dependent on them daily.
I halved the Omeprazole from 40mg to 20mg on Saturday and had some acidic stomach after it, but nothing bad, and the wrap seemed to do it's job as I didn't get heartburn, unlike before and during the 24h ph test, when I had to go off of them.
During the past couple of days, however, I developed a sore throat and sour taste in my mouth. They aren't very bad, but definitely noticeable. The weird thing is that I don't have any mucus and throat clearing stuffs that I frequently had during bad reflux waves in the past. Maybe my throat and esophagus don't want to fight the acid that much as it used to do before because it's a lot less amount.
Keep wandering if it is just some sensitive nerves that are reacting to the acid presence in my body after years of surpressing it with PPIs. I read several times that atypical symptoms take longer to resolve. Probably it is because a longer adjustment period than the esophagus. Don't know, just trying to find some common sense here.
Any Nissen veterans who had this? Was it transient and resolved? Or did you do anything else? I can opt to stay on ppis, but really want to avoid that. They helped my LPR big time, so it was an acid problem, therefore the surgery.
