Stomach wrap

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach wrap


Avatar f tn That surgeon did all the usual tests and concluded that the wrap was far too tight as I had an added problem of poor motility (ie food would stay in my gullet until it was ready to enter the stomach). As the wrap was so tight it pooled in the gullet hence the regurgitation and inability to swallow. I had the undo operation in 2008 and much to my dismay but anticipated, I got the acid back with vengence and now have grade 4 erosion in the gullet and stomach.

Avatar f tn honestly, your QUICKEST bet is HONESTLY, breastfeeding...or pumping. it tightens all your stomach muscles and helps you look the way you did before pregnancy. remember to just work out and work on your sister wore a wrap when ever she exercised.
Avatar m tn I did not think about it until too late that maybe the acid was there because my stomach moved and if it was put back into place maybe I would not need the wrap. Well, I have had problems ever since the surgery. My stomach is huge and tight, I choke on food and drink (no alcohol) and now have shortness of breath to the point of choking. I have some secretions that keep rising up in my chest and throat and more.
Avatar m tn I want to know what it can't see as pertaining to the nissen wrap. Can they the UpperGI/Barium swallow tell if the wrap is too tight? Can it absolutely tell if the stomach is touching the diaphram?

Avatar n tn I had a Nissen Fundoplication Wrap October, 2005. I have a paralyzed left hemi diaphragm & my stomach had floated into my chest above my left breast pushing my heart over to the middle & twisting the esophagus & other organs. Oct. 2004 I had my stomach stitched in place hopeing this would work & it only lasted 3 months or less so the NFW was the only alternative at this point because I was in a dangerous situation.
Avatar f tn Some people say it is counterproductive because it takes the work away from your stomach muscles, and other swear by using such garments. Anyone have opinions either way?
561650 tn?1316816668 Hello, I had the Lap Nissen Fundoplication to correct an esophageal hernia 2.5 years ago. Since then, I have been unable to vomit or burp. I had a endoscopy done and a dilation of the wrap but it did nothing to help. I now have "gas bloat syndrome" and have been miserable anytime I get sick and need to expel food, because all I do is dry heave and hurt my stomach muscles. I want to have this thing undone. Is this even possible? I live in Dallas, TX.
Avatar f tn Then the worlds worst nausea and intense stomach pains where wrap is started. Can't eat or drink and surgeon won't reverse but someone needs to. No life and no more am I a single mom as I'm too sick to function. Losing car and house but too sick to live at shelter.
Avatar f tn Did anyone use a body shaper to get their stomach back into shape after having a c section? An how soon did u start to use it??
Avatar n tn Also, do you know of anyone who lost their spleen or had their stomach rupture. My stomach looks like a road map--not a pretty site for a 52 year old. I am so depressed and disgusted with my health, but I just keep praying that tomorrow will be better. I don't want to sleep sitting up again.

Avatar f tn But then about a week or so ago, I started to get chest pains and stomach pains. It feels like heartburn, sortof. When I brought it up to my surgeon, he thinks the wrap is too tight and it is pains from food getting stuck???? I am not really having to much trouble eating. But he wants me to undergo a dialation, to have the opening stretch, but I think it has come unwrapped already? Can anyone advise if I should undergo the dialation? Or is it a waste of time and money?
Avatar f tn Having unbearable daily nausea and stomach pains and trouble swallowing. Food getting stuck. Starting having trouble 3 months after. Current endo showed another hernia but surgeon not buying it. He believes current ct and barium that showed no hernia r correct. Can't eat/drink just as bad as a year ago before surgery. Surgeon wants me to do Manometry and bravo capsule. Tried and paid and failed Manometry last yr as I couldnt tolerate and heard bravo horror stories.

Avatar f tn I'm having a planned c-section. I'm looking for a stomach wrap to wear when I have my baby. Where is the best place to get one or is there a proper name for it? Maybe I can't find one because I'm searching the wrong item.
Avatar m tn Sometimes the nerves that are in your chest area radiate pain outward and even wrap around to your back, causing the sensation of pain in remote areas of the body. This is according to my husband's chiropractor. Your other symptoms are associated with poor digestion.
