I am 22 years old and was diagnosed with GERD when I was a month old. The did a Thal Fundoplication with me and I have led a pretty normal life since. I had no real issues until I was in high school. I have dumping syndrome as a side affect of the GERD but other than that nothing major. As I have gotten old my surgery has loosened to allow me to throw up which concerned me but as my doctor has said it is normal and it has 'grown' with me which will most likely mean the surgery will need to be redone eventually. My question is will the Tal Fundoplication be disrupted if I am to get pregnant? I plan on having kids in the next 5-10 years. If anyone has information I would appreciate it! Thanks!
I've had a Nissen Fundoplication, but don't know what a Thal Fundoplication is. Is there a difference?
You have asked a wonderful question, as with a NF I don't vomit, and I'm a guy so can't refer to the pregnancy issue but as an old guy I watched my wife and girls turn green and wretch... hope someone with experience answers. Again, What is a Thal Fundoplication?
