Dec 10, 2019 · Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome (MALS) in Digestive Health

For people who have had surgery with Dr. Hsu, what does he do differently with the nerves of the celiac plexus than just unroofing them, as other surgeons do? People have commented that he takes a different approach to those nerves, which might account for his success. I couldn’t find any medical papers that he might have written explaining the procedure.

I had lap surgery 4 weeks ago along with unroofing of the nerves of the celiac plexus. My symptoms returned within 5 days and seem to be worse now than before surgery. Has anyone else experienced this? I have pain with eating that radiates to the back.

For people who found laparoscopic surgery successful, was it felt immediately or was it more gradual over time? I had surgery 5 days ago. For the first 3 days, I felt great, then on the four day I had pain. Today is better. Also, for those on anti-dumping diets, could you completely go off of the diet after surgery or was take gradual too?

I have not had my lap surgery for MALS yet. I have to travel by airplane soon and sitting is very painful for me. Has anyone found a specific pillow or technique that helps during long flights?

Thanks for the replies on sitting positions affecting the pain with MALS. When my symptoms started 15 months ago, I had severe pain below my left ribs near the bra line. It’s very painful to put pressure on that area. This pain has continued. Has anyone else experience pain in the same area?

I have been diagnosed with MALS.
Has anyone found that a sitting position and abdominal pressure from belts or tight pants exacerbate the pain of MALS?
