I'm 25 years old and have suffered with a hiatus hernia and chronic GERD for 7 years now.
I've tried all the PPIs and they don't work for me. I was offered the Nissen Fundoplication- half wrap in September 2016, after researching this, I found that LINX looked much more appealing.
After a second 24 hour and manometry Ph test, the surgeon who does the LINX Operation at Salford Royal has decided that my gullet is too weak for the LINX Operation. I am having a further manometry test but with food to see if this shows that my gullet isn't as weak with food. However it's not looking good.
My second option is to go back to the idea of the Nissen as I can't live on medication anymore as it doesn't work for me at all and the acid I have can be horrendous.
I've not seen many positive reviews of the Nissen and it's very off putting and worrying as I'm still quite young to have this type of op to have it go wrong. Is there anyone out there that can share a positive review?
I'd be very greatful for any advice or information, thank you.
