Re: Post Nissen Fundoplication Burning
There is no easy answer. The burning after the surgery isn't normal. Has she been back in to see her Gastro or Surgeon about this since the surgery? She may need a pH test or EGD to verify that it is the reflux and to see of the wrap has come undone. Did she have the 360 wrap? If so, it may not be tight enough. Is she watching what she is eating, sleeping on an incline, not eating before bed, etc... All the homeopathic stuff for reflux?
You might browse the acid reflux board to get some ideas.
On the Nexium and Aciphex, did she take them once per day or twice? For the LPR symptoms in the throat, twice a day PPI's is most effective, although it doesn't typically eliminate the symptoms completely, it does help though.
I wish your mom well.
By the way, I had a Nissen last October. I've had some belching, but no burning.
