Hi all, I'm 6 days post Nissen op.
Had my surgery due to reflux caused by a hiatus hernia as I didn't respond to any meds which was put down to a senstive esophagus. After surgery, my surgeon has put me on a 2 week liquid diet which I'm half way through, however I'm still getting heartburn even from liquids. I'm guessing this is surgical pain and not reflux but I'm hoping to get some reassurances from those in the know
I was a little worried my wrap might've slipped the day after my surgery as I was getting sharp stabbing pains in my side, under my right rip cage and my ab muscle was tight and spasming when laying down or getting up. This has since stopped though (thank goodness as it was agony!) so thinking it might just be my muscles moving back into place since being blown up with all the gas for the surgery.
I suppose I've just been thinking the worst but if anyone has any words of wisdom that would be appreciated.
