Are you sure your doc said 38.5 cm????? To my knowledge, the diaphragmatic hiatus itself is approximately 2 cm in length. At 38.5 cm it would mean a lot of your stomach is sliding through your diaphragm.

Hey kaddyshack,
Welcome to the forum.
It sounds too long. Is it possible he said 38.5mm?

Do a search on you tube for a do-it yourself treatment.
Apparently it is easy and safe. I know someone that tried it successfully and avoided the proposed doctors procedure. I watched it as I was curious and indeed it seemed to be a no brainer. Wonder if it would work for most?
Hope you get this taken care of soon and feel better!
Blessings
