I am open to going to any city in the USA for surgery, does not matter that I live in Albuquerque. I belive the majority of my current symptions are due to a non-functioning LES and the hiatal hernia. I had a Nissen fundoplication performed about 3 years ago.
Was symtom free for 2 years after. Now LES is again not functioning and now have hiatal hernia. I understand redo's on Nissen fundoplication are tricky. I'm am seeking a facility and Surgon that has had experience and high success with redo's, do you have any suggestions?
Also, are there now alternatives to Nissen fundoplication that are effective? I have read about a method using an implanted ring to serve as an LES. Can not find any info about effectivmess or where it is performed.
Yes, I could also have IBS, I want to solve one issue at a time. I believe if I have IBS it is secondary to my most severe symtoms.
Sorry for getting on you, I just don't feel good.
