We're saying prayers for your sweet baby. I've been reading your blog for quite some time. My 3yr old was a former 25wkr who has a g-tube and nissen along with other issues. I didn't know that there were any surgeons who would do a nissen fundoplication without a g-tube since there's no way to relieve the pressure that can build up in the stomach and the nissen can be ripped open as a result. Good luck to you guys! It's a tough decision.

My baby was a potential Nissen and gtube surgery but we ended up not needing it. He got sick at 7 wks and had lots of aspiration pneumonia.
I was under the impression that all Nissen surgery had to also get a gtube/button type placement so as to relieve the pressure as needed. Although, that doesn't mean the baby has to be tube fed.
Prayers!
