Have heart palpitation, breathlessness on bending. Had toupet fundoplication for acute GORD, but symptoms back, medicine not working

I had a toupet fundoplication for acute GORD with regurgitation of the food done laproscopically about 33 months ago. When I try to bend forward to do any gardening, within 5 minutes I feel acute palpitation of the heart and breathlessness. I find bending forward to tie my shoe laces also is difficult. Also all my GORD symptoms have been back within 3 months of surgery and now PPI medicines don't seem to work any more even with full diet control. I never smoke or take drinks.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

GORD - Add pro-kinetic drug like domperidone / and antacid magaldrate

PALPITATION - need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG). / Standard ECG records the electrical activity of the heart, for a few seconds. It can detect the arrhythmia occurring during that time only. If the episode occurs randomly or precipitated by a specific activity like exercise, one needs Holter or event monitor. / Also ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.

The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
