Reversal of a fundoplication

Posted by @pawsboy9 in Digestive Health, Aug 5, 2012

I had a hernia and the fundoplication done in February as post this my chest is on fire. Going back to see the surgeon who did it on Tuesday. Has anybody had the same experience? If this guy does not have a answer heading for Mayo.

I had the Nissan fundiplication about a year and a half ago. I felt amazing for nine-months. Then, one day my stomach was burning, aching, you name it. I went back to the mayo clinic and got scoped to check the wrap. Well, the GI said the wrap was good and that he also checked me for SIBO. Sure enough, I have it. Along with two ulcers. I was also wondering about a reversal of the surgery. I still have GURDS, and recently found out from a GI in Texas that two-thirds of people who have had this surgery still require acid blockers. So I think I wasted a lot of money, but am not sure if the surgery caused the SIBO. if it did, I will definitely have it reversed. I am worse than I was pre-procedure. So maybe see if you have developed SIBO as well. Good Luck in your quest.

Greg today was terrible, drank some Maalox and took some acid blocker hope to sleep through the night. You had the surgery ay Mayo? Have you done enough research to find out who deos the best reversal. I live in Cincinnati, I know it has to get better than this. Thanks Dennis

Hey Dennis. I know your pain buddy. I haven't researched the reversal yet. I'm going to get scoped this Tuesday ( north and south pole) because this GI thinks I've got more than one thing going on. I literally have made my peace with God three times. Even though I did have a hernia, this doc says there's a reason for so much acid. That reason he explained, is my body trying to control the bad bacteria in my small intestine. Well, over time somethings gotta give, and I developed GERDS. I've missed some work, but it's getting worse. And I too am worried. My stomach, chest, or guts hurt all the time now. I'm being checked for Celiac disease, Crohns, diverticultis, IBS, and some others. Once I get these results I will see what this GI recommends. I will also talk to him about benefits of a reversal. I did have mine done at Mayo in Phoenix. Awesome female surgeon. I won't ever go for surgery anyplace else. The only two things that give me some relief are, nexium, and keeping something in my stomach. I have been to a holistic doc. Spent about $600.00 on supplements. Got some relief. Short-lived though. My advice Dennis, for what it's worth is to see if you've got something secondary that's causing your symptoms. In the meantime, I will be researching the pros and cons of a reversal and let u know what I find out ok. Hang in there buddy. I know it's miserable. But you're not alone. I'm on the Internet every night talking with people about this. There's an overload if opinions though. It's hard to sort through it all, but I'm pretty damn perserverant, and tired of feeling like this. Try nexium for now is all I've right now. You may have also developed ulcers post surgery like I did. Take care.
