Hi guys...I thought it would be interesting for people to put down different things they ate post op their Nissen Fundoplications...I think it would be good for our members who have recently gone through it, and those who are soon to go through it.
 
So please, take a minute to jot down some ideas!
 
Thanks guys...you are all GREAT!  :-)

Hello:  All I can say is that I am 9 weeks post op Nissen and today my daughter and I went to eat at Famous Dave's Barbeque and got very sick.  I don't know if it was the fat content in the brisket/ribs or the spicy barbeque sauce.  My portion was small, so I know it wasn't the quantity.  You know right away when something makes you sick even at 9 weeks post-op.  As soon as I got home I popped the nausea pill and it helped.  So go figure????Barbara.

I am sorry there are not more answers here...I thought more people would share.

Thanks for sharing your experience Barbara...and I am sorry you got very sick after eating that. Since you ate a small portion, I would bet the spices were just too much to handle, even still, at 9 weeks post op.

Please, anyone, got any ideas???

Hi:
 
I ate a lot of baby food....Milk shakes...
 
I also bought a food grinder and ground up a lot of chicken.
 
I would boil the chicken and put mayo in it with salt and pepper and ate a lot of that.  I had no beef for 6 months nor fresh bread.  After 2 months I could eat TOAST in small very small pieces.  After I ate it I would drink a glass of warm water.
 
I had mine done 7 years ago this past november

BEEF is a big NO NO NO NO for at least 6 months. Its very hard to digest. Even today after 7 years I have a hard time with Beef, I only eat it once in a great moon. When I do eat it, I get heartburn.

However my wrap has slipped big time so that could cause me the heartburn. I won't have it fixed. For me the Niessen did not do much but I know people it did wonders for.

NO BEEF PLEASE

I ate jello, mac & cheese, oatmeal, chicken noodle with crackers crumbled up until they got soft, orange sherbet.

Wen4003:  The surgery we are refering to is called Nissen Fundoplication and this is a surgery that is performed to correct acid reflux or to correct a hiatal hernia.  In my case I had the surgery to fix both the hernia and acid reflux. 

Jujuju:  How did you know your Nissen failed?  That is one thing that does scare me (to go thru all of this recovery mess only to have the surgery fail).  Also, did you have any relief at all in the 7 years since the surgery?  I think if I had some relief and it had worked and suddently slipped, I am pretty sure I'd go back in and have it redone.  It has been a rough bumpy road to recovery but I just pray to God that in the end it is worth it....Barbara...
