Hi Williams 50, my name is Lucy and I had a Nissen Fundoplication done on 8-17-18. I failed all reflux testing that is done pre-op which makes you a candidate for the surgery. the tests are a ph study and manometry study. I failed on all PPI's as well. I struggled with gerd, chest pain, etc. I felt good post op for about 4 months but the chest pressure and pain snuck back and now it is the same as it was pre op. I am getting an EGD (endoscopy scope) done on 1-23-19. I also had to be hospitalized on 1-12-19 for severe nausea, bloating and they thought I had a bowel obstruction (you can't burp or throw up after a Nissen). They had to decompress my stomach by putting an NG tube down and getting all the air out of my stomach. I am 55 y/o, weigh 100lbs, and go to the gym 3-4 times a week. I don't know what is going on now but I wonder if I should have ever had the procedure done. I am also an RN who works in the inpatient endoscopy department at a local hospital. I am not sure we can communicate by personal email. Do you know whether we can or not?
