Gastroenteritis surgery

Anyone out there who's infant or toddler have the Nissen fundoplication (sp?) surgery and how did it go and how did it turn out now? My 8 month old is scheduled for tomorrow and I am having a hard time with it. even though the docs in Boston told us he needed it. So scared but more afraid of the alternative if he doesn't have it. Any info would be greatly appreciated Thanks!

  • I"m a pediatric nurse and I have a little experience with children who have had that procedure. My experience is that there weren't any complications. Is your LO having the laparoscopic procedure or the bigger one? If you want to PM me, we can talk more. :)
