I had a Laproscopic Nissen Fundoplication done at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota on 12/14/05 and I'm doing great! I've lost about 18 lbs because you can't eat as much and had trouble for a couple of weeks with stuff getting stuck in my esophagus and having to bring it back up just to be more comfortable.
I am able to burp but not vomit. I got the dry heaves one night and it didn't last very long and I felt better.
Lots of people will scare the crap out of you but this surgery isn't as bad as people make it out to be. I'm heartburn free and no more refluxing.
I am very glad I did this, it has improved my life 150%!!!
