HI and welcome to the GERD forum.

Wow, u have  a lot going on...but the bloating makes me think u may also have IBS issues....? do u? Have u talked with ur dr in regards to this? U need to evacuate on a regular basis and it must be a certain amount to be a normal movement.Otherwise u will have awful back pains and bloating.

A hiatal hernia will cause gerd issues, but with diet and lifstyle modifications u can keep it under control.

U may need more fiber in ur diet...talk to ur GI dr about ur issues and what can u take /do to help this situation.

My dr put me on miralax to help with the bloating....once regulated I stopped using it and only use it now if I have a problem.

Have u been checked to see if the H. Pylori is gone? I believe I read in another thread u had that as well? GB operations can cause this to pop up and u do need to keep an eye on it....and sometimes it is possible  to have too little  acid and it can feel the same...in that case a probiotic can help.

The best advice I can give is see ur dr and fill him in on what is going on.

IBS= Irritable bowel syndrome

There is also a list of lifestyle changes that u can modify to also help for example: elevate the head of the bed to keep the acids down where they belong.

See the Health Pages here on MedHelp for the complete list of lifestyle tips.
