Many children stop having a reflux problem from the age of 6 months,but many take much longer and are more than 2 years old before reflux stops. In some babies it appears to stop and then starts up again. Your son's Nissen has probably helped him to a large extent but he definitely still seems to be refluxuing and his stomach acid is causing him discomfortt.He really still needs to be treated with the Nexiam or Losec.If the pH test is still positive for reflux,he will not require another Missen op but will need to be treated on an anti-reflux medicine such as domperidone [Motilium] together with the Losec.
