I had fundoplication to repair my hiatus hernia 2 weeks ago. I've got over the surgery and no problem with swallowing but I think I've still got acid reflux. I've got chest pains, heartburn and an acid taste in my mouth. I know people will say that it can take time for the swelling to go down and the symptoms to go but to be perfectly honest I have had no relieve at all. I was expecting that after a couple of weeks for things to be a little better but unfortunately they are not.
I am due to see my surgeon today to discuss my problems and hopefully he'll be able to give me some answers as to why it doesn't seem to have worked.
Has anyone else had this surgery and not had good results straightaway? I was hoping to be well on my way to recovery by now. I wasn't expecting to still be getting symptoms.
Is it possible for the wrap or stitches to have come undone so soon. I haven't done anything strenuous and I've followed the sloppy diet.
Any ideas anyone ?
