I had a hiatal hernia repair with fundoplication 10 months ago (March 2016). BTW I'm a 66 year old female. The reason I had it was for symptoms of pharyngeal laryngeal reflux. I had post nasal drip with constant clearing of my throat, difficulty breathing, sinus congestion, fatigue, never any mucus, no coughing. I knew I had a large hiatal hernia and after suffering for over a year, I decided to do something about it. But the fundoplication didn't work. So I went to ent doc who repaired a deviated septum and did a turbinate reduction. But the symptoms were still there. The ent doc sent me for a barium esophagram and it turns out that I have stenosis at the fundoplication site. I am still suffering a lot with extreme fatigue, sinus congestion, shortness of breath. I've also lost about 35 lbs which I don't miss but the problem is, I am still losing weight. In addition to the stenosis, I am fairly certain I have a bad sinus problem but the ent doc says he fixed the sinuses and he won't even take a look. What should I do - go back to the same gi doc, go back to the same ent doc or see new docs and if so, what kind of doc should I see?
