Re: Post nissen fundo need some advice and assurance

I had a Nissen in 2008. It takes about 3 months for your stomach to totally heal from the surgery. Right now, your stomach is inflammed and not in its normal state. Give it a couple more weeks before really worrying.

My surgeon had me on a liquid only diet for 2 weeks. I added soft foods in for two weeks after that. Then I added in solid foods, except bread and meat. I added those in at the 3 month mark. You might want to take it easy on what you are eating for a while.

Per my doctor's orders, I stayed on my PPI's post surgery. I would think that some Gaviscon might help as needed. That's my own personal opinion though. Are you still taking painkillers? That may have an affect as well.

Wishing you well.
