[QUOTE=flowergirl2day;3693725]Chantal, :)

I wish you luck with your new medication. I am on the same boat hormone-wise- all sorts of things going on, none of them good. I wish we didn't have to go through this. The hiatal hernia is usually left alone and ignored, as long as it does not cause too many symptoms. If it causes aspiration of stomach acid into the lungs, they will fix it. I've had mine for some time and lived with it. I now have another one of a different type right below it. It bulges sometimes. I wonder if all the coughing and choking from acid reflux might have caused it. I do not usually lift heavy things. I should be getting a third opinion shortly as to whether or not an immediate surgery is required. I have some other GI issues as well, caused by who knows what.
It is always nice to talk to you, too, Chantel!!! :) :) :)

P.S. The doctor I just saw tends to think the hernia should be fixed. He fixes them and offered to do mine. I've sort of left it open, and said not now. I feel really sick to my stomach right now. The only relief I get is when I lie down, and the feeling I am about to throw up goes away. I sure hope this is not a sign of things to come!!! I am leaving for holidays tomorrow. I don't want to spend the week being sick to my stomach and not able to eat.

Hi again FG,

I'm sorry you are feeling so sick right now. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

As for surgery I've opted to wait as my Dr told me they are not always succesful because the hiatal hernia reverts back. All that pain for naught. Of course I don't want to live like this either for the rest of my life so I hope I can manage it with meds.

I wish for you a happy and nausea free vacation. Isn't the reglan helping today?

Chantal
