Fri, Mar 13 8:05am · Hiatal Hernia - Surgery & Complications in Digestive Health

I am contemplating not getting it done at all . I have no symptoms of GERD, my problem is I throw up if I eat too much. And by too much I mean not so much. (2-3 oz chicken, veggie, potato is fine….anything more 1/2 an avocado or a salad – too much.) Do you have these types of eating restrictions now? How much? I am amenable to eating four meals a day vs 3. I do not eat spicy or fried food anyway so that is not a problem. Do you have any thoughts on NOT doing the operation. It seems quite major to me.

I have had a hiatial hernia for a number of years. Recently, I started throwing up after meals. The results of a Fluoroscopy (spelling?), indicated that half my stomach is pulled up through the diaphragm. Apparently the hole has gotten larger over the years. One gastroenterologist has recommended surgery and sent me to a general surgeon for an operation. Questions, if you have any experience with this condition

1. The name of the operation is Nissen fundoplication. It is done laparoscopically. If you or someone you know has had this operation, what comments, concerns or input do you have. Especially, are you GLAD you had it done?

2. Did you go to a general surgeon or a vascular surgeon or what type of surgeon?
.
3. Side effects if any?

4, What were your original symptoms and were they resolved?
