My wife had a dual surgery performed two years ago, both hiatal hernia and gerd( nussen fundoplication ,performed laproscopically.
Since then she has been in constant pain,daily fevers, exhaustion.
There's been some evidence of I ternal bleeding- blood in the stool.
There's been vomiting.
The surgeon did not know my wife has cysts in her pancreas until a year post surgery,he said.
He said at one point,he thought stitches may have pulled out..
A second opinion, by a gastroenterologist, was that the gerd surgery may well have been unnecessary,and he very very rarely recommends the fundoplication,and basically stated that despite worries if Barrett's syndrome icurring,that he only once in his entire career recommends the gerd surgery as it is so contrary to the functioning of the statement as to e needed only in rare rare cases.
I don't know how my wife gets along, she spends much time sleeping.
The huatal hernia
report said her stomach was above her diaphragm and twisting around in her chest cavity , dangerously...
I think this may well have been the one and only cause of her reflux distress.
I think she perhaps could have been fine if her stomach was simply pulled back down into it's right position .
Was a gerd then necessary?
It has caused her a living hell.
My thoughts now are... Can a gerd nissen fundoplication be undone?
Especially if some stitches did pull out..
Has a gerd fundoplication ever been undone?Is it dangerous?
If stitches did pull out along her timeline since the operation wouldn't this fail--- result in twisting and pinching of her abdominal and biliary system, complicating things , and even possibly mimicing symptoms of pancreatic distress also!??
It is a complex issue,that is her life now.. we pray to our Lord God to help us.
Whicart in heaven,hallowed bevthy name.
Can someone offer any insight here. ?
She at least has found a fine gastroenterologist and I'm writing this because it's exactly what I am going to ask him when I see him.
Help my wife...is the name I think I m. Posting under.
