Give it time : Think about it this way: before the operation, you had terrible problems with reflux. Now, after a major operation, you are having some readjustment issues. In time, these will go away. You probably had the reflux problem for years, and you're only in to the 3rd week of the adjustment phase of your no reflux life. You'll come around soon enough. Don't worry. Hope this helps!

Complication: one of the nissen fundoplication surgery complication is outlet obstruction partial or complete
if he vagus nerve injured during the procedure on one side you might end up with partial obstruction and delay gastric emptying
if both side were injured then the patient will have a complete obstruction
my advise check with your surgeon asap
