I have recently been diagnosed with esophagus spasms the conclusion my doctor has come to is that I need Nissen surgery. I'm supposed to have this done the 13th of September and I'm wondering if this is the right thing to do. I have a small hiatal hernia I have regurgitation and acid reflux but I can live with that I have three years. (In I have eaten in the last 6 hours)- In just the last year when I walk three and a half miles an hour for an hour and a half on the treadmill everyday. I would find myself having to stop because of chest pressure. It would stop me dead in my tracks! Long story short after many heart test and test by the gastroenterologist and being denied by my insurance for the links procedure! The surgeon says my only choice is the Nissen procedure and he cannot guarantee that it will help stop the esophagus spasming! He said in five years when the Nissen doesn't work anymore maybe the insurance will cover the links and I can get the help I need!! Has anybody gotten the Nissen procedure because of esophagus spasms?
