Re: Nissen Fundoplication

I had my Nissen done about a year and a half ago. It took about 9 months before I felt like I really recovered from the surgery but I have felt much better since I had the procedure done! I was completely miserable before the surgery. I no longer have the upper body "stress" or the arm and kneck pain, my vocal chords have healed considerably, I no longer have constant bloating and although I have asthma it hopefully won't get any worse now that the acid is under control. The only scary thing about the procedure is not throwing up, I had the stomach flu last summer and cannot believe that my wrap did not come undone.
