Seven years ago I had a nissen fundoplication done by a great surgeon here in San Antonio,Texas. I had a very large hiatal hernia. The wrap has come undone and there is another hernia. I have visited with the same two surgeons that did the original surgery. At the time (seven years ago) I was told that the surgery could never be repeated and if I wanted to ever consider gastric bypass, it would not be possible. These doctors are surgeons at a bariatric clinic and this is the types of surgeries they do every day. During my visit last week, I was told a repair surgery was necessary and once they get in my abdominal area, if the stomach and herniated areas are in really bad shape, I would need gastric bypass as a last resort. I am almost 62 years old and about 25 pounds over weight. I am scared to death and the thought of something going wrong leaves me in great fear. Have any of you ever had the repair done? The surgery was not a walk in the park, but I have a very high tolerance for pain. The discomfort isn’t a concern, but something going wrong is.
