... and I was wondering if anyone has ever had this surgery before. If so, 360º or 270º? What was your physical recovery like? What was your diet after surgery like and for what duration? I know that I won't be able to eat normal food for a while, and I will lose some weight, but at least I won't have heartburn anymore!
(As background, I'm excited for this surgery! After years of GERD issues and taking medications like Nexium due to a failing sphincter and hiatal hernia, Mayo figured out that I don't properly-metabolize proton pump inhibitors (in addition to a bunch of other medications), and this was why I was so comprehensively sick for years. After stopping these meds, I lost a ton weight, and revisited my GI doctor. He said that since I can't take PPIs and had lost so much weight, I was now an excellent candidate for the surgery.)
