what should i do???????????????

Hi there, well saturday was a bad day for my nissen problems, even after having my stomach valve stretched, i had bits of chicken shredded of course , get stuck and was in the bathroom 5 times in a hour throwing it back up. I dont know what to do anymore i dont see the surgeon for another week. I take reglan, but was wandering if i have an infection going on. I am tired of going to the surgeon for this because he keeps saying it will get better. But so far i dont see much of an improvement. I cant lose anymore weight , i am not weak but if may come to that. anyway just venting , as i am so tired of this . it has been almost 8 weeks now. angie

I am sorry that you are still having problems. If the surgeon isn't being helpful to you perhaps it's time for a second opinion. While I don't have experience with the surgery you had it doesn't sound right to me that you still can't eat.

Hi Angie,

I am sorry to hear you are having so much trouble.
It sounds awful.

My mom had a friend who was diagnosed with something called Achalasia.... it is where the esophagus essentially becomes paralyzed and doesn't work right. Food just used to sit in her esophagus and cause all sorts of trouble.

She lost alot of weight but had surgery recently and is doing much better. I guess it is a pretty rare condition.... your comments about the chicken just made me think of that.

I hope things are better after the surgery.

So sorry! Why do we have to be on this roller coaster ride? Pain, suffering, hope, disappointment and then it starts all over again. I know your frustration.

Sorry to hear your still having troubles! Though it's been 2 months since my Lap Nissen I still have swallowing difficulty at times too, for me it's a constant reminder to eat slow. My espohagus spasms and I start with the hiccups, my worst troubles are when I drink cold liquids, it feels like a lump in my throat. If your still having a hard time after being dilated it could be due to irritation (lets hope).
Angie it's like taking two steps foward and three back! try going back to your full liquid diet and have frequent smaller meals or grind meats in a food processor not appetizing I know- but it helps! and you need the nutrition.
ing that you don't have to have your wrap redone, take care.


Ps...try logging onto heartburn-help.com they have a fundo forum.

Hi and thanks, i went back to soup and ensure. Funny thing is i can eat candy bars and chips but meat(even shredded just seems not to want to go down. Maybe it is irritated. The gas is really bad now too. As for the cold drinks i can relate to that too. ouch.. thx again angie
