Has anyone else suffered diarrhoea in the months following Nissen findoplication? I am now 12 weeks post surgery and still not back to eating normally, lots of wind and gurgling tummy noises and diarrhoea. I also suffer with IBS which seems to be worse since the surgery. Recently caught a stomach bug which, although everyone else who has had it has recovered in 24 to 48 hours, I am still suffering on and off for more than 2 weeks, 2 periods of 2 days off work, sent in a stool sample today so will wait for results. Think my resistance is low. Have lost 8kgs since my surgery and still losing, now 49.5 kgs and have lost muscle tone. don't know what to eat because of the cramps and diarrhoea. Wonder if it's anything to do with now stopping the Omeprazole after being on it for 10 years. No more acid reflux but has the IBS been exacerbated or is it because my stomach is now having to deal with absorbing vitamin b12 and magnesium which it hasn't been able to absorb for a long time due to the Omeprazole? Also worried about osteoporosis, my arms and legs so thin, can I ask for a test? So many questions! Any ideas?
