I have resigned myself to the eventuality of having an oesophogectomy early next year after a few years postponing it as I have already had three surgeries..1-Myotomy; 2-Nissen; 3-Revision of the Nissen which had been done laparascopically but deemed too tight, so was revised using conventional surgery, but to no avail. I still struggle swallowing and have severe and painful reflux despite being on two PPIs twice and thrice daily. I actually take Morphine for the pain. My only apprehension is surrounding the reflux. Does it go away after the oesophogectomy or are we stuck with it for life?
