Hi tomorrow will make 1 week since I had this surgery. It was definately 'time'. I've suffered from GERD for over 10 years. For the last two years I've had to double up on my medication and it still didn't work. I was popping Tumms during the night like crazy. Nothing worse than having the acid come all the way up into the back of your throat! I'm still mostly on a full liquid diet but slowly adding in soft foods. So far eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese work ok. I tried Pancakes but that was a no go.
My question is how long does it take for the distension in the abdomen to go down? I had taken a pair of pants to the hospital that were a good size to big and when I left I couldn't even zip them up. I've been wearing excersise pants with an elastic waist.
