yes me, trust me you should have surgery for this, unless you want to let this disease rule your life.

Nicole Schrock
What do you mean surgery? Have you? Rule my life? How do you mean? Thanks so much for your response.

Christina CriCri
Nicole Schrock there is no medicine for hiatal hernias or the symptoms caused by them, you can only resign in having a sad life eating bland foods and being underweight so you won't cause a flare, but the HH will always be there unless you have surgery.

Nicole Schrock
I know alot of people with them and GERD and they have not had the surgery and None of them are underweight? I actually could stand to lose weight as I have PCOS and its hard to lose any...I was told by these people that you reintroduce foods back in and find what makes it worse, I have so many other issues besides just that, that Im not really wanting any surgery I am scared enough about the Schatzki that I just found out about today...Thank you so much for this information because it does help me to talk to the specialist when I see them and again with my GP <3. Related Post: My reflux is pretty well controlled with Zantac and a very strict diet.

Nicole Schrock whatever you like for yourself and your life, it's your decision, but I told you this so you know you don't have to torture yourself aimlessly, the goal is to feel better and function normally.

Christina CriCri
Nicole Schrock I just answered your post, everyone chooses their paths in dealing with this.

Nicole Schrock
