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

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

Today marks my eleventh month mark since my esophagus and hernia surgery. Since starting the apple cider vinegar I have not lost any more weigh then I would of think since my last month posting so right know am at 184lbs. Still not able to eat large meals so I have been cooking more health choices. Rollerskating I was not able to do once a week now its every two week the workouts have had me to tried to enjoy the skating. I did try the salmon and it was great to eat my diet has change a lot since my surgery so I take it one week at a time as far as what I will eat would I do cook something health so next month will be a year I was at my highest weigh of 206lbs down to 184lbs its great that the surgery help be to start eating more healthy less spicy foods. Hope all is doing well with there own recovery will check in next month take care until then

I am new to this forum. I just had surgery 2 1/2 was ago. My hernia had become so large that half of my stomach was in my chest and was discovered on an ultrasound for kidney infections. I’m doing fine, but I get impatient. Bending seems to be my biggest issue. I mostly miss my morning Diet Coke, and as bad as it is, I’m hoping to be able to indulge again sometime. I’m going back to work on a limited basis this week. I would love to hear from any of you as the other forums seem to be from many years ago. I had a full wrap. No reflux or heartburn since surgery, no more Nexium. Still tired and sore and feeling a little “blue”

Dear Linda T glad you had the surgery you are at the beginning of a long road I was able to drink soda after I was release to go back to exercises my surgery was in may did not go back to exercises until July. what I notice after surgery my taste buds are much different I love diet diet pepsi but now I have to have it lime in for me to drink it. As far as spicy foods I still learning from the even a year later I tried buffalo wing several months ago and it was hard to get though on the 1st day was only able to eat three the next day it feel a lil better so I had four wings. As far as you healing most of the blog here told me it would take about six months too a year to recovery everybody recovery is different on here. Just take it slow like I did I had my fear still at the six month mark but since I lost some weigh my eating habits have changed I have to learn not to cook large meals just for myself that has been my learning process since my recovery also make sure you do as the doctors have ordered you to do, like I said it my take about six months to a year before you started to feel like yourself again. Please check in a let me know how you are doing in the coming months take care of your self

Had my Hiatal Hernia repair and full Nissen Fundoplication 2 weeks ago. Surgery seemed to go well and initial recovery was tough but manageable. Started on liquids day one and Dr moved me to mechanical soft diet day 2, which I though was odd based on everything I read. Tolerated the mechanical soft diet well for a few days, but starting day 9, found that morning was ok, but unable to eat anything close to solid later in the day causing major chest pain. This has been going on for the last 5 days with no improvement yet. Typical effects are choking and pain, with the stuck food and or water come up. Wondering if anyone else is having this type of issue or if there is any advice on how to manage the stuck food pain? Is there a way to stand of stretch that my help the food go down?
