Has anyone had Nissan Fundoplication and then experienced GI disorders, particularly with motility? I developed bacteria overgrowth up to 4 years following this procedure that I had for GERD. I suffer with daily stomach pain, alternation between constipation and diarrhea and have nausea. I have been on antibiotics for several months and a motility drug called metoclopramide. I'm better than 6 months ago but struggle daily with the above symptoms. My first GI doctor diagnosed me with IBS, however, none of the meds for IBS worked for me and in some cases, worsened my situation. I sought out another opinion and my current doctor gave me the meds I'm currently on which did help. She feels my vagus nerve was irritated during the fundoplication and now the motility of my colon is affected which is causing my current problems. After 4 months under her care, she says this is the best I'm ever going to be. A little disappointing as I have to work full time and I struggle with this every day. Any similar problems out there with some hopeful cures? Appreciate any discussion about this.
