Forum Name: Ear Nose and Throat

Question: Feeling of something in throat


transcribeit2 - Mon Feb 07, 2005 6:51 pm

What can it be if you feel like something is in your throat. It stays in the same area, but moves around a little. Have had a hiatal hernia repair as well as gastroesophageal reflux disease and Nissen fundoplication.
Dr. Safaa Mahmoud - Thu Jul 13, 2006 5:27 am

Dear transcribeit2,

Swallowing difficulties are common (in about 50%) complications during the first 3-4 Weeks postoperative. Patients are usually advised to start with semi liquid foods and avoid any type of food that might cause indigestion. Some physicians prescribe Antacids for a month after the fundoplication.
The swallowed air due to in adjusted motility, causes bloating and abdominal cramps due to accumulated gas. Flatulence may be permanent.

Any symptom that is persistent for more than month should be discussed with the surgeon. So I advise you to keep on follow up with your surgeon since he can delineate expected postoperative complication from others that need surgical interference.

Best regards,
