I had Nissen Fundoplication - Please help

Hello I have GERD + Asthma.
And from 4 years im suffering from GERD and POWERFUL asthma.

When I start to have the acid reflux, Phlegm will increase and that will lead to a POWERFUL asthma (No breathing at all)
And that affected my Life, Work and Sport
After all the suffering, the only solution was of course a Nissen Fundoplication. (Anti-Reflux Surgery)
Which I did before 5 days, And after the surgery my acid IS WORSE !
All the symptoms are back and WORSE + Hard to swallow, Bloating and Full Liquid Diet !

Maybe that went from the Surgeon experience ! Maybe he is not good enough, I don't know.. But he's in The London Clinic, And this hospital is well known World Wide.

Im thinking to Undo the Nissen Fundoplication (Reversal Nissen).

I don't know what to do after ! I'll have the ACID + ASTHMA again, And maybe i'll have an esophageal cancer.

so i'm in a middle of a Whirl.

Any suggestion ?

Re: I had Nissen Fundoplication - Please help

How long exactly has it been since your surgery? It takes about 3 months to really heal. You need to get through the early days of healing and back to trying solid foods before deciding if it is successful.

Are you on any medication for your reflux and asthma?

I stayed on both high dose PPI's and multiple high dose asthma meds for a long time post-surgery. It took a long time before I weaned off the asthma meds. I'm still on the PPI's 4 years later.

I had developed life-threatening asthma from my reflux. I considered my NF successful though.
