My son had several surgeries bulked together at once in February. He was 4 and is autistic, but one of them was not a Nissen (he has multiple other things done). Have you discussed other types of surgical options that are just as successful, such as a Toupet Fundoplication? I'd look into those if something is necessary. Also, are they requiring a g-tube placement with the surgery or no? There may be more people with personal experience in this group -
