post nissen wrap symptoms

Posted by @nirolk, Sun, Apr 29 9:52pm

I had a nissen wrap operation in 1999. I still have problems at night after about 4 hours of sleep. I've tried all kinds of drugs to help relieve the gas. Right now I am on 40 mg of pantoprazole in the morning before breakfast. Most of the time days are fine. I have problems being regular on bowl movements, so I have a high amt of gas from the meds I take to go number 2. At night is when I have real problems. Any kindred spirits out there?

I have achalesia stage 3, with spasms. I had 10 times the normal pressure in my esophagus before POEM surgery. I since had fundopliacation a year ago . I have extreme gas and bloating as well as pain. They are trying a new medication on me, nortriptyline. And breatbing therapy. At night I must use ambien to sleep and usually wake up 4 or 5 hours later with what they call super gastric belching. I sound like something out of the exorcist. I find adding medical marijuana at night allows me to sleep about 7 hours. I use aciphex, which works better for me. Hope this helps

Thanks for your response and info. I am trying different things. Have started taking my Pantoprazole, 40 mg, at the evening meal an hour before we eat. Seems to help as when I wake up in the night the gas is lower in my body as opposed to being just below my stomach and I can pass it easier. What make my situation worse is I am constipated most of the time and I need to take something for that. Almost everything that stimulates the bowls produces gas—— so, that doesn't help. Thanks for you response. God bless.
