Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Surgery

I had my Nissen last October. I was diagnosed with IBS a couple weeks later. My IBS had shown itself in the months previously though. In the months preceeding my surgery, I was on every PPI on the market. Within one day of starting the Nexium, I started in with the big "D". I still have some major intermittent nausea which I attribute to the Nissen, but the rest is just the IBS. It can be frustrating at times dealing with the symptoms.

My GI doc still has me on a double dose PPI and following my anti-reflux diet and lifestyle. I was doing it pre-surgery and he wouldn't give me permission to change after because he said my IBS symptoms would probably get worse. I think maybe my diet is keeping the IBS from getting worse.

Unhappy Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Surgery

The doctor has put me on lotronex for the severe IBS and it is giving me terrible pain in my stomach and now I can't go to the bathroom at all!Not sure what to do!I hardly eat anything because I never feel hungry.When I do eat I get terrible pain.The GI dr I go to is not concerned which scares me!I am on a drug with dangerous side effects.I will probably find a new dr.

Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Surgery

Since my Nissen, I've gone to the Alternating version of IBS. I take an antispasmotic for the pain. I'm on a high fiber, 35 g, diet. I have a prescription for Miralax and for Lomotel. They are to help me as I swing from C to D and back. I've had to up my use of the antispasmotic. I try to only use the others when I absolutely need them.

Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Surgery

I just read a study that said 14% of Nissen patients end up with diarrhea as a side effect post surgery.
