question about nissen

I had the nissen fundoplication a few years ago and it really helped my symptoms; however, the surgeon told me once I had the procedure I could not throw up. I'm not sure what that meant. Last year, I was on an airplane and became deathly airsick and threw up multiple times into an airsick bag. Ever since that time, I have had recurring problems as I did before the Nissen and I don't know what to do.

You need to go back and see your doctor. The ability to throw up may suggest that the wrap has loosened and may need to be redone. And the fact that you've had symptoms similar to those you had before the wrap also may indicate the wrap is looser. Call your doc.

Get a new GI opinion. I would have brought him back a souvenier bag!
