I am a long term heartburn patient, have had it since I was 13 (about15 years now). Just last month I had the a Nissen Toupet Wrap done, I was in pain, but felt great, no heartburn. Then about a week or so ago I started getting chest pains and stomach pains, feels like it's heartburn again!! I called my surgeron and he seems to think it is not heartburn, but food getting stuck causing the chest pains. I am not really having problems eating and I having been burping alot with no problems. But he wants to go in a dialte. I am scheduled for the scope next week. My question is: Is it possible for the wrap to come undone in less than a month? Or is it possible that food is getting stuck, even though I can still burp? Will the surgeon be able to tell if the wrap is undone when he goes in to dialte?
I felt so good after the surgery, I just want my chestpains to go away.
