I have had the second you are referring to. It is called a Nissan Wrap. They take the top of your stomach and sew it around the bottom of your esophagus. It was a very easy surgery for me to have. I still have to take Nexium, but that is ok. At least, I am no longer aspirating into my lungs. I had to sleep in a recliner for about
8 weeks before they could even do the surgery. The sotmach acid had burned my lungs severly. It took my lungs almost 4 years to heal. I have been on so many medicaitons becasue of this, that it has caused me alot of side effects, esp. from prolonged steroid use.
But back to the stomcah surgery, it was well worht it to me to have that part corrected. Good luck. J
