I am 25yo female that had nissen fundoplication 3.5 weeks ago. Since then I have trouble swallowing, nausea, and get full after a few bites. I have esophageal dysmotility so they did not do a complete wrap; however, before the surgery I could eat anything I wanted. Now I can eat a few blenderized things. I have lost 16lbs, so I am down to 93 lbs. How much is too much to lose and what intervention can I take? I tried ensure and instant breakfast but can't tolerate the taste and it makes me really nauseated. I am getting so worn out that it is difficult to work and I start graduate school in 2 wks. I would appreciated any suggestions.
