My wife has achalasia and she had the Heller Myotomy operation done about three years ago. She is currently ill, we think it is a flue or some bug, although she feels very nauseous she can't throw up. I was wondering whether this could be due to the operation. My other concern is that if she fell pregnant and have morning sickness would she be okay?
I had a Heller Myotomy eight years ago and am now in my first trimester. I have extreme nausea, which I feel could be relieved if I could only vomit. I, however, have not been able to vomit since my surgery. I have had the 24 hour flu and since the ability to vomit is no longer there it just takes longer (more like 48+ hours) to get better. I am wondering, how your wife coped with the nausea. I have tried everything from ginger tea to eating before getting out of bed...but the nausea never subsides. Thanks.

also now the achalasia is back i am regergitating again, but stil can only bring bile up.
