Dear Friends,
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.
Sincerely yours,
Help my the name I think I m. Posting under.

I had the same condition. My stomach went through my hiatal hernia and was up in my chest upside down. It was a very painful condition. I had a “robotic-assisted gastroesophageal valvuloplasty with a Vicryl patch to the Hiatal hernia”. It is possible to have the Nissen wrap undone. There are some people who have had the reversal, but they must have the same condition before surgery. My surgeon performs a takedown and puts a valve between the esophagus and stomach, which opens and closed when you eat.

I have a thread labeled “Robotic-assisted gastroesophageal valvuloplasty with Vicryl closure of the hiatal hernia“ and included several links -one is on fb called “Nissen fundoplication takedown” . There are individuals who have had the takedown done. I also recommend that your wife call my surgeon to see if he can help. Good luck, I know this is a tough problem and very painful.
