I had a nissen fundoplication about three weeks ago. I feel GREAT!
I am breathing better (reflux was giving me chronic pneumonia and also aggravating asthma)and swallowing better. I don't have to sleep with four pillows or in the recliner anymore.
I feel like I have gotten my life back after a number of years of undiagnosed suffering.
Within hours of surgery, I could tell a difference in the way I felt.
Eating is a bit of a challenge in that I can't sit and eat a big plate full of food anymore. But I can still eat a good portion. I eat more frequently but smaller meals.
The surgery has made all the difference in the quality of life I have.
I was miserable before surgery -- couldn't breathe, had an esophageal stricture and had no energy. Also, had frequent chest pain (heart ruled out), jaw and ear pain. So glad I had surgery.
