I’m having heartburn still two months after my nissen fundoplication. My dysphagia problem still there because I got 360 wrap. it’s not as bad as it was in the first two months , it’s starting to show improvement in the last couple days where I don’t need to drink water as much while I’m eating but, I still have a ways to go. I read that post operatively it takes about three months for symptoms to really resolve I’m praying that that’s true because my heartburn was just bad before I went in and now it feels like it didn’t help at all. I had Hiatal hernia 2 cm, some Barrett’s esophagus and gastritis from what the endoscopy revealed and I had my Nissan fundoplication on February 26, 2020 so it’s still fresh. I hope you get better I feel your pain and agony I know it’s it’s very frustrating and messes with our quality of life it’s unfortunate I’ll pray us both.

After 1 year I haven't really had heartburn ?? My problem is problems swallowing and constant abdominal pains with diarrhea .Ugh. Hopefully after tomorrow's upper endoscopy my surgeon can find out what's going on ? Prayers to you …

It almost sounds like you had a failed nissen fundoplication ??? You shouldn't be feeling any heartburn ??? My surgeon suggested to me not to drink 1/2 hour before and after eating ?? I had both ( Nissen Fundoplication & And Wrap ) I haven't had any heartburn but allot of other problems !! Definitely contact you surgeon . Hope all works out for you, definitely no easy road !

I am six weeks post-op and I am experiencing the same symptoms, minus the heartburn; thank goodness, What ultimately did they do to give you some relief?
