Second Fundoplication
I was wondering if there was anyone out there that had multiple fundoplications and how successful the second one was. I am also a severe asthmatic with a history of long term use of prednisone. My surgeon could not tell me whether or not I would need another fundoplication. I am nearing the 3yr mark for the second fundoplication and shortly after that is when the first one stopped being effective. My worry though is that I would have even greater difficulty swallowing. sometimes it is still painful. Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. Kimberly- Phoenix, AZ
