Reversal of Nissen Fundoplication

I had a hiatal hernia repair with toupet fundoplication in April in Dallas. Presurgery symptoms consisted of 1000s of burping and acid leak into my throat at night. Now post surgery, there is a constant cacophony of gurgling sounds in my stomach, stomach bloat with any food, the acid has returned, throat feels raw, flatulence is round the clock, I experience daily bouts of very severe epigastric pain in the upper abdomen or so I think it is. I now suffer unexplained dizziness whenever I bend down suddely. I am more miserable now than before the procedure. I am seeing the surgeon in a couple of days would want to discuss a reversal, kinda want to know if anyone had gone through this and what worked or didn't work.

Hi @uzi and my welcomes to Mayo Clinic Connect. You have definitely been through the ringer with all of your symptoms.
I wanted you to be able to connect with other members who have had similar problems and surgeries, so you will see I moved your post to this discussion https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/nissen-fundoplication-reversal/ You can click on view and reply or you can go to your profile and see your post under comments.

There are many members who have been through either a toupet or nissen fundoplication here.

Here is an overview of the two of them.

It is said that the toupet can have long term effects that are greater than the nissen. Did your physician suggest this particular procedure because of your pre-surgical symptoms?
