Gas bloat syndrome and Gastroparesis

Hi, my 4 year old daughter under went a nissen fundoplication when she was 9 months old. It was successful, she still cannot throw up or burp. When she gets sick she retches. Her retching spells have got closer and closer together with severe pain. This has been constant for the past month. We took her to urgent care and they said she had the flu and sent us home with zofran. 2 hours later we were back at urgent care for the same thing. 2 Weeks later she was admitted for 7 days. They ran tons of test and she has gas bloat syndrome, gastroparesis, duodenitis. They have put her on meds, prevacid, elavil and miralax. Does anyone know if this will go away or will she have it for the rest of her life??? The doctors did say that if the meds dont work after a few months she would need a pyloroplasty but that is only 50/50 chance of working. Any suggestions? Has anyone ever experienced this? Please help

Hi, in the acute phase there could be inflammation and swelling of the bowel loops, as this settles down, her symptoms should improve. But if there is an organic cause/structural defect, it will need to be surgically corrected. You can discuss the possibilities with the treating doctors. Good luck with her therapy. Regards.
