Reversal of Nissen Fundoplication

My husband is 4 weeks out from Nissen fundoplication surgery. They gave him a loose wrap. It has been living hell. He is miserable. He couldn't swallow a pill hardly the first two weeks, now nothing stays in him. Diarreah all the time…. he's been back to the doctor he just says give it time. He can't sleep laying down, he has lost 15 pounds and does not need to lose weight AT ALL. He's losing muscle. He wishes he would NEVER have had this surgery done. We need help!

are you sure this is a loose wrap? it sounds like the wrap may be too tight, since pills can't be swallowed . There si an esophagus test that can be down to see if the wrap is too tight. my wrap is too tight for a little over 2 years, and i still experence "heartburn like pain". i have been diagnosed with a hypersensitive esophagus. i have to take atavan 2-3 times a day to soothe the burn like symptoms. I have been thru all the tests and there is no acid reflux in my system now….. i would suggest another opinion from a different thoracic surgeon. if he is getting a bloated feeling after drinking water, then it is possible to get diarhea, because of rapid dumping into the small intestine. i can't get mine reversed right now, since my neck and back are acting up very badly from arthritis,until i can get it under control. He should have a stool check to make sure he doesn't have C-diff bacteria. Some of his diahrea could be symptomatic of this. Consult with your PCP for ideas. Good luck and god bless…..kozlo52
