Hello everyone. This month marks 10 years post Nissen surgery. This board was my support during recovery. The posts are still there and as I reread them, I hope others have benefitted from them. It's unusual to find posts right after surgery with a follow up to let others know what to expect in the futue. In my case, life post nissen is still heartburn free, i can burp, but still cannot vomit. I highly recommend this procedure. To sum it up, I remain

Today marks my six month mark since my esophagus and hernia surgery ... I was able to enjoy spaghetti with garlic and onion this week with little too no side of effect of excessive burping. I have maintain my current weigh of 180lbs for about three months now and still working out four times a week but with more weights now. When I started my weight lost I was doing one hour on the epileptic machine and 30 minutes on weights so know am down to 30 minutes on the epileptic machine, weight training for the last 30 minutes of workout for a total of one hour now. Am a country boy and enjoy southern meal's, but am finding I can not make big meal like I use too without having to throw half of it away so I still learning how to cook smaller meals for my smaller frame. I still find myself chewing gum all day since my surgery and when I drink soda most have lemon juice in it for taste my taste buds are still off for some reason I was wondering do anyone one else have the some symptoms. Thanks for checking in HappilyWrapped I just can not wait until its been a year later I hope to see great improvements in my taste buds. Hope everyone is doing good in there own recovery will post next month take care until then

Yesterday marks my seventh month since my esophagus and hernia surgery.... Thanksgiving was a shock to my system it was not ready on the 1st day of eating thanksgiving fest I feel a little sick to my stomach but not enough to throw up nono rolleyes ... I maintain my weigh also not gaining any weigh I had been in the 180lbs from September to November so I decided to lose 10 more pounds this month already in the 170's just a couple of pounds to get to the 170 scale I can say the surgery worked on my weigh lost. Not for sure if am cooking for Christmas and New Year's not sure if I want to go through the pain of it all but would love some gumbo maybe... I still have a lot of belching at times I was thing about making appointment to see the GI doctor to see how am healing since the surgery that was the main reason why I had the surgery back in May.. I still have several months to go for a year after the surgery check lost weigh but still having belching problems.. Hope all is doing well with there own recovery will check in next month take care until then

Yesterday marks my eighth month since my esophagus and hernia surgery. I have lost about 30lbs since my surgery finding it hard to cook for myself. I made spaghetti and meat sauce a couple of weeks back I use a pound of ground beef but that was to much for me to eat so I have to make half of that the next time I make it. I also cooked Turkey with dressing, Mac and Cheese, collard greens for new years and my body is still not taking to well on all that heavy foods glad it only comes around once a year. I am chewing less gum these days now my mouth is not as dry as it was for the 1st six months after my surgery. In my last post I did drop down to 172lbs but I had the flu for a week after xmas so my weigh drop but am back to 179lbs now still trying to get to the weigh of 170lbs in the next couple of weeks will keep you posted. Hope all is doing well with there own recovery will check in next month take care until then
