Aug 3, 2017 · Failed Nissen w/gastroparesis & possible MALs in Digestive Health

Thats exactly what my surgeon said .How he was very sorry didn’t listen to me in the first place .He extremly sorry he kept listening to
my GI doctor who would listen to her parrtner who kept saying no to going in and reversing it to a loose one .It was also cause he was so sorry cause he was told their was something else wrong .We found out from my surgeon referring me to his gi buddy that i have esphogus spasms and thats when he said ok lets go in and reverse it to a loose wrap.Keep fingers crossed keep this well .
Glad you have such good doctors ..

Hi,Debbie here.I just had my nissian Fundplication wrap redone on July 6,2017.I have been telling my surgeon and Gi doctor for 3 1/2 years it was too tight and ablot of issues .Well finally went in and reversed it to a loose wrap .So far everything has been going great .No more tight complctions and discomfort i had all time in chest .While he was doing it realize it was starting to colapse and that s why i was having more and more issues my food was getting stuck.I am keeping myself on liguid diet for at least 6 months to make sure all heals well and no issues.So pleased with the reverse …My surgeon was especially pleased with my results so far ……

Hi sorry to hear all issues since your wrap. I had gastroparesis and all those issues before he did my wrap . The wrap has made my gastroparesis even worse .The reason why we did the wrap was because I couldn’t keep Any of food down.we did put in nuero stimulator pacemaker it did nothing for me so we took it back out when he did the wrap. So ever since the wrap can’t throw up at all even when I had to food poison real bad twice twice and stomach virus place so I would have to go to the hospital and get IVs and everything . Stomach is constantly bloated and I’m the opposite I can’t lose weight I keep gaining weight and constantly bloated stomach and all over the body crashes all the time constantly paying everywhere especially upper back and chest between shoulder blades .has made my Aorta Arthoscoliosis really bad ..It sucks. You explain this all to the doctors and I look at you like you’re weird and then you get OK if you want to listen I’ll do it but I’ll never see you again and not happy to do it .so when do doctors start listening to patients?I hope you get some answers feeling better

That’s awesome your gastroparesis pacemaker is helping .Mine never helped .I still constantly couldn’t keep my food down .The only thing that helped me is this wrap .But i am in constant pain and discomfort.Always bloated up ,constraint ,heartburn ,pain,so on and so on .Its frustrating .

Yeah it is so frustrating .He is the top head of thoriatic surgeon in Denver .I understand his concerns and all but .When do you listen to your patient and not what you were taught .
