Thinking of having this surgery reversed. Have any of you had it done? I am having so many problems - GERD and reflux are just as bad as before the surgery. Taking Probiotics and Enzymes seem to help some - but Prilosec and the antiacids don't seem to work anymore.
Thank you for responding. I made an appointment with a gastroenterologist this morning for next month. I requested an ultrasound of my oddi duct and my pancreas. I want to be sure everything is okay before I go back to the surgeon. I will mention the PH to the doctor to see what he says. - You're not supposed to be able to burp after the fundo' but I am burping a lot and so bloated. Could be that one soda I had. (Gave them up years ago).
I had the procedure with outstanding results about five years ago, but must tell you I followed the diet exactly as prescribed by my doctor, and still do. I will say, during a party I tossed down a glass of bubbly instead of plain wine, and I paid for a single glass with really bad gas. However, once the problem was naturally resolved, I was fine.
I doubt that a single soda would cause a failure, you must have other issues. Possibly the wrap wasn't tight enough. I haven't taken a single PPI, antacid or any other over the counter nostrum including probiotics or enzymes at the suggestion of my doctor since the surgery, or a need to take them. A relative also had the procedure, and rushed the dietary restrictions by eating beef, pork and chicken plus fatty sauces and dressings within a couple months of surgery and her stitches broke, leading to a health mess, so obviously the stitches can be dislodged. Keep us informed.
My gastroenterologist informed me that I now have a hiatal hernia. However, I must go back to my surgeon next month to see if my "stitches" have come loose due to vomiting from a side effect of another medication.
