I am sorry about your wife.
the vagus nerve is a cranial nerve which goes by the esophagus and stomach and can be damaged by nissen fundoplication surgery.
damage to the vagus nerve can cause dysautonomia and syncope
I'm sure she has consulted with a neurology nerve doctor already
she may benefit from nerve injury medications like neurontin or lyrica
medical marijuana could possibly help her symptoms.
let me know if you have questions.
she should at least try lyrica and see if that helps.
she should get a brain EEG and brain MRI scan
she should be seeing a neurologist as well.
she may be able to find some CBD oil which could be found in Tx and could help her possibly with her symptoms.
