I've had IBS for 10 years. Symptoms getting worse, Dr. ordered an upper GI/barium x-ray. They found unusually large paraesophageal hernia. Bottom of stomach, duodenum and part of bowel have flipped up and are sticking up through my diaphragm.
Dr. says I must have surgery. Is laproscopic surgery the best for this condition? What is the morbidity rate for this kind of surgery? If anyone out there has undergone surgery for this kind of condition, please respond with advice.
