Mar 17, 2017 · Reversal of a fundoplication in Digestive Health

According to the specialist i saw last month, once you have the Nissen you should not need any kind of antacid again He explained that is the wrap is working, no acid should be able to come back through. my wrap is to tight which is why i am having it adjusted next week.

I am, scheduled to have my wrap loosened. I had the nissen a little over a year ago and have been miserable since. I had to have a dilation almost every month as the wrap is to tight. The procedure is scheduled for April 15. I will let you know how it goes. Denise

I have taken 2 prevacid daily for years to help control my Barretts Esophagus. I continued to take them after my wrap;. The new surgeon that i saw last week that is going to attempt to fix my wrap said that i should not have to take any meds, he explained that because the wrap prevents acid from going back through the esophagus, no meds are needed. I have stopped and will havwait two weeks to see if i still experience reflux, if i do, he says that besides my wrap being to tight, it would also be to loose at some point and he will have to fix that also. 🙁

I met with a surgeon on Tuesday and have scheduled a redo on my nissen for April 19 . I was having a dilation almost monthly with two having to be done in the ER. The outcome is my wrap is way to tight. He will go in and take off half the wrap to widen it so i will finely be able to eat with out food getting stuck. I never really vomit from my stomach because the food usually doesn’t make it done that far, it will get blocked going down and than if i eat or drink it just piles on top of what is stuck and i end up throwing it all up. It is a nightmare and i, too wish i never had it done. I will keep you posted on how it goes.

Yes, i did have the test done first and it came out fine. Last week i had a repeat of the test plus a barium swallow test I see my gastro doctor next week and we will talk about have the reversal done. In the last two weeks i have ended up in the ER because i couldn’t get food down and they did a dilation and i have had to throw up at least three times and wait for food to go down. It usually takes about 1/2 hour. This surgery did not work at all for me but i am very concerned what problems the reversal will bring.
