How do you know when you need to push your doctor to have your fundoplacation redone? Mine is 11 1/2 years old-very stretched out but still perfectly sewn and intact so the gastroenterologists say no. I can take a drink and bend over and it will roll out. I can also vomit now and have the pain, IBS symptoms and nausea I did before the surgery.
I would suggest that you go to a completely new GI (I assume this GI has treated you before?) and start all the basic tests again: Endoscopy, PH/Impendance study and/or Manomatric study to see to what degree the Nissen has failed.
Thank You! I did go to a new one. He did an EGD and when I came to he said very loudly that is was so stretched out and old!!! But no-it is intact so it must be a slow emptying stomach (been there). No help at all from him. He also didn't like that I had 12 1/2 years of gastric experience and yelled at me "I am a doctor too!". Are there any good doctor's left???
