palpitations after food

I went to theatre for laparoscopic Nissen Fundo-plication 6 weeks ago. This was unfortunately changed to an open procedure after the surgeon cut through the veins of my spleen, and I suffered huge blood loss. Ever since the surgery I have experienced palpitations after eating. This is very distressing and can last from a few minutes, to a few hours. I saw the surgeon 2 weeks ago and he asked for a cardiology opinion. The symptoms are not improving, and I wondered if anyone else has had this problem. I was in good health prior to this.

This discussion is related to Nissen post-op.
