I did not have Nissen wrap but the robotic Laparoscopic Hiatal Hernia repair with mesh. I received Miralax Tuesday evening I believe and I am still constipated. My doc said I could have ice cream so I've had ice cream every day and pudding along with plenty of fluids. I don't want to just take a laxative because I don't want to make my stomach too upset.
I have also noticed a few times I will have a gasp of air almost like a hiccup and it feels like my stomach jumps then a pain.
However, I have had no acid, no reflux, nothing. I can tell if I have too much food is like my stomach puffs and will hurt or really uncomfortable. Since, I didn't have Fundoplication my diet is a little different and recovery is different so I'm not sure whether I still can't have caffeine, citrus or chocolate. I prepared myself thinking I would have the Nissen, now is hard getting info on hiatal repair only. I try to limit my soup intake from 2 to 4 oz.
Is there anyone who only had large hiatal repair without the Nissen wrap?
