I Believe there was a new hiatus Hernia procedure tried there and failed. it was aborted. the regular procedure was then initiated and and was successful. in the remaining time left, repairs to the experimental residue has surrounded and captured the Vagus nerve and in holding it stationary. Some cartilage was also cut and is flopping around BY THE RIB CAGE.that needs repair..

Hi, it appears that the vagus nerve got pressure on it during the procedure, and getting irritated. It may get relieved as the time lapses, other wise opening the abdomen and correction may be required. vagotomy may be the last resort.
I to my patients with such condition prescribe pragabolin, and methylcobolamine , for soothing the nerve. Thank you.
