Let’s put the fun back in Nissen Fundoplication.March 28, 2011
As I mentioned before, I will be having surgery soon. The procedure is called a Nissen Fundoplication (as you may have guessed from the very specific joke above). Basically, it involves wrapping part of my stomach around my esophagus and sewing it in place to strengthen the gastroesophageal junction. My drawing is a pretty fair representation of the wrap and suture results (minus the festive hat and confetti).
