Nissen Fundoplication gone wrong

I had the Nissen fundoplication surgery done 6 weeks ago.  Two days post surgery, I started to experience my reflux symptoms again.  My surgeon assures me that I had a fantastic wrap and that it can not be reflux anymore.  I am having a hard time believing him because I actually respond to my reflux medications when I take them.  The problem with taking the medications is that the prolonged use of PPI caused me to get several stomac polyps.  What should I do.  I feel like I am in a no win situation.  In order to see another surgeon you have to be referred by thhe surgeon who performed the surgery.  Anyone else experiencing this?  Any advice?
