Hi all my hubby had his surgery 17 moths ago and is doing well eating is getting better but occasional reflux possibly due to over eating. ! I have read recently about lots of recurrence on another site and they all seem to be around 14-18 months post op. It is beginning to panic me that he is now at that stage and will it come back. How long does it take till the risk is reduced. He is not worried about it but it is all I think about. Don't know what I would do without my anti anxiety meds I take more tablets than him !!!!
