It is not uncommon to experience some temporary difficulty in swallowing (and with solid foods, in particular), regurgitation, and bloating after undergoing esophageal fundoplication for a hiatal hernia.

If you are still experiencing frequent nausea and vomiting, on a daily basis, 8 weeks after surgery, then you should see your surgeon again.
