Hello all, I have a few questions about the nissen fundoplication. I have read a lot about it and it seems like everything I read contradicts each other. Some medical journals etc say it has a good outcome but others say a poor outcome. I have rarely come across anyone online that has had the nissen for a long time most of the time they seem to fail. Or is this that the long term successes never go online?
Why do they slip or fail and how can one maintain their wrap for many many years? Does it have to do with diet and how you look after yourself after the wrap or is it the work of the surgeon? I certainly don't want to be on medication for long I'm really young and ppis are dangerous plus my LES doesn't work (did a manonety for this) I am more worried that it won't last rather than for the side effects.
