Ebony, You will eventually be able to burp again, it just takes a while. I assume they have put you through a lot of tests to come to the conclusion that you need this surgery. It's not one they usually do otherwise. I had the lap Nissen in 2005 only because they thought it was triggering some of my asthma attacks. I will tell you, after surgery your esophagus is going to be very tight for a while. When you first try to start eating, even soft foods, you will have a hard time with things going down and it will be very painful and for a few seconds you may think you are going to die. You're not; try not to panic, it's just going to be painful. Don't try to throw it back up, that's not going to happen either. My reflux is better after surgery, but I still have to take Nexium. It did help the asthma attacks a little. The surgery wasn't bad, but the recovery was terrible. If it hadn't been for the severity of my asthma, I would not have considered having it done. I am not trying to scare you or talk you out of it, I just want you to know what you are getting into.
