Gtube / Nissen surgery / delayed stomach emptying

Tiffany - posted on 06/16/2011 ( no moms have responded yet )




My 11 month old daughter has had a g-tube since she was 3 weeks old. Over the last few months she has been refluxing really bad. She hasnt gained any weight in the past three months. Her doctors are thinking of doing a surgery called a Nissen to prevent reflux (which I personally think should have been done a long time ago). Does anyone have experience with this surgery? Will surgery be more difficult considering she has a g-tube? Also, a nuclear medicine study showed that her stomach is extremely delayed in emptying. I heard that there is a surgery for that as well. Any info on this? Thank you.
