mom to Mila 2-20-2007
and Robby 4-22-2004
Mila is on Peptamen JR 30 cal by NG tube. Open Heart Surgery 2/08/08. Captopril, Zantac, Losec, Lasix.
Are you an adult? Are you having a gtube put in as well as having the fundo done? I have no idea what to expect in an adult, but children often recover from a laproscopic fundo within a few days - adults will take longer, and an open fundo ( incision that is NOT laproscopic ) may take longer than a week to recover. Welcome to pager!

Hug! I'm scheudling my fundo next week (setting up the date, not having it done!). Doctor said liquid diet for a couple weeks (clear liquids to start, then all liquids, etc.). My doc said he'd expect me to feel better (reflux-wise) the next day. The pamplet I received said maybe a couple weeks off work? I wish you luck - I am very nervous too, and don't know how I will care for my children if I don't feel great. ((hug))

I'm unsure what to expect for an adult. We have a family friend who had a fundo last week. We volunteer together and she took off the whole month. She is older though. Good luck to you both. I hope you feel so much better soon and are no longer plagued with GERD! Hugs.
