laparoscopic Nissen operation

Is a laparoscopic Nissen operation safe and will i be able to have a normal life afterwards. (sports and execise?) My reflux valve is too big and the surgeon wants to resize it, it causes severe heartburn and stomach aches. Please advise.

Hallo Madelein
If the surgeon is experienced in laparoscopic Nissan operation technique it is just as effective as the abdominal cut operation. You will be able to do normal sport and exercise activities afterwards (after it has healed - 6 weeks at least).
