← Return to Ulcer, chronic gastritis, Nissen - Endless stomach problems

I had several issues with my digestive system. I had a Nissen that did nothing but make things worse. My esophagus wasn't pushing through anywhere close to what it should. My stomach was producing too much acid, it was backing up into my lungs. I had delayed gastric emptying where food was sitting in my stomach up to 8 hrs. This was also causing nutrition problems. Food was getting destroyed in the stomach before it could get to my intestines where nutrition is absorbed. It was causing me to be hypoglycemic. By removing most of my stomach and fixing the connection of the intestines none of that is happening. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks since surgery and my sugar hasn't dropped once, haven't had any reflux, just healing pains. I've been on a soft foods diet since surgery. Tomorrow is my first appointment after surgery. I know I'll have blood test to see how things look. They told me it's about a 6 week recovery to start getting back to normal.

Wow! It’s scary to think of having a large amount of your stomach removed. 🙁 But I am glad you seem to be improving! I have an appointment with the surgeon that did my surgery back in 2012. He is concerned about my symptoms. Not sure what he will say. I hope you have a speedy recovery!! Thanks for sharing
