No, just another horror story. Mine was done 3 years ago. Now I am having a lot of problems as I have a ‘slipped Nissen’. I was going to have a ‘redo’ surgery, but have decided to go the diet/ meditation route instead. I wish you the best of luck. If you are having your surgery laparoscopically done you might fare better than I did with an open surgery.

Ugh. Thanks for letting me know. It is down as "anticipated lapararoscopic surgery, possible open once in surgery", so I don't think they will actually know which is being done until they are in there. I am probably going to cancel it. It just sucks so much, because if I DON'T do it, I am on PPI's for the rest of my life, which I have been reading can lead to a shorter life span, alzheimer's, etc. And if I DON'T take them, I risk esophogeal cancer.
Can they not come up with any better surgeries than one that destroys so many lives? I don't get it. Why even perform this surgery if it is this risky?
