I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A HIATAL HERNIA SEVERAL YEARS AGO. I TAKE AXID EVERYDAY. MY SYMPTOMS SEEM TO BE GETTING WORSE. I VOMIT EVERYDAY IN THE MORNING. I WAS TOLD THE ONLY SURGERY AVAILABLE WAS VERY RADICAL AND WOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED IF I WERE UNABLE TO EAT AND THERE WAS A GREAT WEIGHT LOSS. THAT HAS NOT HAPPEND YET HOWEVER IT SEEMS THAT I SHOULD NOT BE SUFFERING AS MUCH AS I AM. ARE THERE NEW MEDS AVAILABLE? MY DOCTOR DOSEN'T SEEM TO BE UP TO PAR ON TREATMENTS.
I had surgery 3 weeks ago to repair my hiatal hernia. They actually take the top part of your stomach and wrap it around your esophogas to repair the hole. I was in the hospital for two days and have been recovering at home. It is not an easy recovery, but I am hoping it will be worth it. I have had heartburn from this for over 2 years and am looking forward to not having to take any more meds for it.
Please feel free to email me if you have any more questions.
