All,
Tomorrow I have an appointment with a surgeon to discuss partial wrap to curb reflux.
What are the questions I should be asking?

Thanks
Kind regards,

Kamlesh

You may want to ask them if you will be able to vomit if necessary. I had a partial wrap about two years before my SSc started affecting my bowels (small bowel bacteria overgrowth). So when I have problems (which isn't very often) I cannot vomit. So sometimes I have to go to the hospital and have them insert an NG tube to decompress my bowels.

Joel,
Thank you. I will ask the question next time. I am trying to get the surgery to eliminate vomiting I get many times along with heart and throat burning sensation. I had a meeting yesterday with him and basically he was not sure, if I will benefit from surgery or not.
Thanks
Kind regards,

Kamlesh
