5 days ago · Nissen Fundoplication Problems in Digestive Health

Hi Faithann64,
I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this nightmare. You have basically the same symptoms I had with the exception of constipation. Even though I had my wrap undone this year, I still suffer with constipation. My surgeon has put me on linzess, but it is not working too well. I'm fighting with my insurance company to get the highest dosage to see if it will give me some relief. I have hope that some day there will be a resolution for me, but until then, I'll continue to pray. I'll pray for you too.

Hi @januaryjane,
I hear you and know your pain. I have been suffering with constipation for almost 20 years. I also had my gallbladder removed in 1999 and had a Nissen in 2000 which I had reversed in Feb. 2019. I have had many tests and taken many meds to reveal the root cause and get my bowels moving; but none of this has worked. I saw my GI doctor yesterday and he has upped my Linzess to the highest amount of mgs. I will continue to pray and hope that this will give me some relief so that I don't have to get up early every morning to set aside an hour to have a bowel movement. This is frustrating and discouraging, but do not lose hope, God is faithful. I will pray for you and also for myself. Blessings

Bentley33, I will keep you and your son in prayer. I will also keep you informed if they find the root cause of my bloating or treatments natural/medical that alleviate the problem. God's blessings

Hi Bentley33,
How is the acupuncture going? Did you start it yet? I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy done last week that revealed nothing. My surgeon is baffled by my symptoms. I will be taking a Sitz marker study next week. Did you ever have this test done? Please let me know how you are progressing is finding help for your stomach problems. Take care.

TU for replying. My doctor had suggested that I take simethicone and I did but it doesn't work too well for me. Before I had my reverse, I saw my gastro doctor who told me that I have an upper and lower digestive problem. I believe that the reverse nissen helped the upper but now I am still trying to find out what is causing the lower. The surgeon told me to try GasX. It helps some but the problem still exists. I also use DGL which helps to alleviate the gas in the colon. So I will keep searching.

Hi, I had my Nissen reversed on 2/28. It has been approximately 4 weeks and my digestive system is thankful for it. I don't have reflux really at all, but I do still have gas build up especially after I void. Do you experience that? If so, has any of your doctors pinpointed where it is coming from and how to eliminate it? I appreciate any feedback that you can give on this if any. I pray that you would heal quickly and get back to doing the things that you couldn't do with your digestive problems. Have a great day.

Gabigirl26, I just got my post checkup yesterday for my Nissen unwrap. I had been on a liquid diet for approximately 2 weeks. Yesterday was my first day back at eating solid foods. I basically had one meal that I broke into two. When I went to eat the other half of my pancakes and potatoes, the pancakes went down well but the potatoes seem to have gotten stuck. I started belching and all my food came up. Have you experienced this? This was my original problem prior to the wrap. I had my gallbladder removed because of this and then the wrap. My doctor put me on an acid reducer yesterday for 4 weeks when I told him that my pureed meal that I had on Sunday seemed to have a hard time going down. I also experience a lot of bloating after eating. Do you experience that too? As I laid out in my story in February, this all started after my hysterectomy and the wrap just added another dimension to it. I will continue to search for answers to my problem. I really am thankful for all that have been sharing their stories. It lets me know that I am not alone. Keep the faith.

Hi gabigirl26,
I had my Nissen undone last week. Even though I had a difficult time with the anesthesia, I have no doubt that I made the right decision. I am recovering now and waiting for the swelling and gas to move out of my system. I have been suffering with bloating, constipation, light headedness and nausea for 19 years and truly do not believe that the doctor had the right diagnosis and treated the symptoms but did not have the root cause. This now gives me an opportunity if the initial symptoms return to seek a physician that will try to discover the cause. It can only get better going forth. I'm thankful for everyone sharing their experiences and pray that they will also find the root cause as well as you. Blessings to you.
