Re: Post nissen fundo need some advice and assurance

I have not had a Nissen fundoplication but read through others' posts here. I think it takes weeks for the inflamation of the stomach to go down and for you to start feeling normal. If your goal in having the surgery is to get off PPI's, then I would not continue the dependency on them unless your doctor tells you to get back on them for some reason. Find out if you can take antiacids occassionally for irritation. You probably need a very mild and alkaline diet while your stomach heals. But I agree with the other posters in that the symptoms you feel are not comfortable but likely the ones people experience in the days and weeks post surgery. Hope you feel better soon and I would love to hear how you are healing and getting along as time goes on.
