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

@kozlo52 thank you for replying! They told him they were doing a loose wrap. But I will call Monday morning and talk to the nurse…..AGAIN. I can't imagine being as uncomfortable as he is. Also, yesterday, we did go to the health food store and picked up some digestive enzymes….. last night he was able to eat a sweet potato and a little bit of tender pork ….and he had no adverse side effects? So we are going to continue to monitor that. He also will go to his PCP and get checked for C-diff. That is a good suggestion. Thank you.
