Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Complications...Help

Hello,
I got my date for my surgery! February 17th....I am excited to get it done and over with so I can get back to a somewhat normal life. Question....should I start eating less so I can get ready for the amount of hunger I might have after the surgery?

Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Complications...Help

Hi. I had my NF in October 2008. Unless it is a big issue for you, I wouldn't worry about "preparing" for the anticipated hunger you will have. For me, it really wasn't too bad. It really isn't for that many weeks and gradually you will get back into your normal amounts of food.

Good luck,
MountainReader

Smile Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Complications...Help

I know this was posted in 2011 but am curious if you were able to find any answers or any relief? I had my surgery done in 2009 and am still having issues.
I had the intense pain in the chest going up to my head and ears and after having a manometry procedure again they noticed nerve damage might have caused what is called "nutcracker esophagus." It is pretty much where the esophagus tightens and does not release and causes the worst pain that nothing for me relieves.
I am now getting some reflux symptoms on top of the constant nausea, bloating and pain in my right side. I lost about 20 pounds after my surgery and have not been able to gain any of it back.
I can relate to your troubles and hope you have found some relief
