5 days after lapro Nissen fundoplication and when I swallow I still hear fluid reflux into my mouth. Did my surgery fail. Will this get better as I heal? I was told surgery was a success

In brief: Call your surgeon

For any post op issues it is best to call your surgeons office so they are aware and can help if needed-good luck!

In brief: Five days is

too soon to assess success or failure of any operation.
Your surgeon most probably told you that the surgery went well without complication, not that it was a success.
