Nissen fundoplication complication

My daughter had the lap-Nissen procedure 5 years ago, & since has had severe stomach dumping/pain/severe diarrhea/weight loss (down to 89 lbs) since.  We were told that the diarrhea would go away by 2 months following surgery, & it hasnn't.  is it possible that the vagus nerve was permanently damaged? If so, is there a test to confirm this & what can be done?  Are there any other possibilities?  Her health has deteriorated & she has developed other neurological symtoms (symptoms).  After being diagnosed with RA 2 yrs ago & treated with lots of meds that didn't help, she was told recently that she didn't have it! She now suffers with great pain from fibromyalgia. She was healthy prior to surgery - she is now 34 yrs old.  Any suggestions?  WE are at a loss - after 4 days in hospital & numerous cat scans, MRI, colonoscopy, endoscopy - all normal! Please help!!!

Thanks!
