Hello @myskye,

Welcome to Connect. It must be so disheartening that the procedure was not a success; however, you have come to the right place, to get some answers. You may be interested in connecting with @tgirl, @katmandoo, @SherryD, and @gregoryd as they have had similar experiences.
By tagging them on this discussion they will receive an email notification and hopefully return to share their thoughts with you.

I also invite you to check out an older discussion where Nissen Fundoplication Reversal has been discussed by other members:


Have you spoken to your surgeon about reversing the procedure? What do they feel about any risk factors or complications?

I have an appointment for the early part of November to discuss the reversal. At my last dilation my doctor stated that he knew of a doctor in Portland Maine and a few in Boston that can do the reversal. I live in Bangor Maine so either area would work for me. I have had so many problems since the wrap i am leary about another surgery which is why i would like to speak to others that have had the reversal. Thank you for your concern and quick reply.
