Nissen News

December 10, 2008

Kali had an appointment with her surgeon today. Her surgery that we did last summer to correct her reflux has come undone. We will be having it redone on Jan 8th. If you would like to know more about a nissen or what we call a fundo, click here .

Kali’s nissen will be done laparoscopically and she will also have her hiatal hernia fixed at the same time. We may also do a pyloriplasty for her delayed gastric emptying. The pyloriplasty is mentioned in the link above. We will have a test done soon to see if it is needed.

Until then, Kali will not be too comfortable. We are increasing her prevacid and going to space out her feedings a little more to relieve her discomfort.
