Hello everyone I'm just reading everybody's threads on here and just wanted to let everyone know that in two weeks I will be having a Nissen fundoplication. I am 56 and as I'm reading up on a lot of this I have discovered that I have had this at least 35 to 40 years of my life and that explains a lot of stomach problems I have had over the years and could not explain why and no doctor out there could tell me why I find the problem I have had so many tests done in my life so much medicine and now I'm finding out that it's all related to this. I also have mild cerebral palsy and I'm not sure if that plays into gerd or not I also have sleep apnea in which I have read that they go hand-in-hand GERD and sleep apnea go hand-in-hand I am also on oxygen and I have read where hiatal hernia and gerd affect your level of oxygen. Just wanted to comment on what I found out I am so excited to have his surgery before I was nervous but when I read about all the problems that I've had the majority of my adult life and they all stemmed back from this hiatal hernia and gerd am so ecstatic. Is there anyone that can comment on how long they have had theirs as I am afraid once I get in there to operate they are going to find more problems then they anticipate I also expect them to end up doing an open surgery as opposed to a laparoscopic.
