Nissen Fundoplication

This discussion is related to Hiatal  Hernia Problems?.


My surgeon tells me he will insert a tube throught the stomach to hold it in place after my hiatal hernia surgery.  Is this normal and how will it be removed?  He said it would stay in about 2 wks.  He also said it would not be a feeding tube, just something to hold the stomach in place.  Anyone ever had this done?

Hi, I just wondered how your surgery went. I am having the same thing done maybe along with a gall bladder removal. I find out today about the gall bladder. I wonder how long your hospital stay was if any and how the pain is afterwards. Do you still have hearburn after it was done. Did you have the tube you were talking about. I am afraid of the pain, yuck. Also hoping there is no hospital stay with it. Were you able to get up and around after, how was eating? Thanks, Linda
