Thumbs up GERD gone! My Nissen is great!

Hello all
I haven't been at this site for a while. I had my nissen fundoplication surgery at Mayo 3 months ago, and just wanted to let you all know that it has been like a miracle cure for me. I have NO GERD for the first time in 10-15 years and the surgery was much easier to recover from then I expected. I left the hospital after two days and only took occasional over the counter tylenol for pain. I haven't needed or taken any antacids or ppi's since. I just wanted you all to know that if you have GERD there IS hope! I wish I had had the surgery YEARS ago. Do find a reputable surgeon for this one!
Best Wishes,

Sponsors Lightbulb
