I had a Nissen fundoplication and a hiatal hernia repair about
6 months ago. All went well. About 2.5 months ago I started having
what seemed to be occasional reflux. After the symptoms began to
get worse ( heartburn, reflux, difficulty swallowing) and more
frequent I had an esophogram and an upper GI which showed a small
hiatal hernia. I then had a gastric empting study which I was told
did not show any reflux. Right now I am only taking tums. Do you
have a clue to what is going on? I see the Dr. again in a few weeks.
