paraesophageal hernia

About 3 years ago I had a paraesophageal hernia repair. It was an open surgery, they could not do laprascopic. Lately I have noticed very slight burning in my stomach and some mild pain in the middle of my chest. The pain is no where near as bad as it was last time and I probably would not even pay any attention to it if I did not have a history with this condition.

Has anyone had an experience where they had to have this surgery more than once? How did the symptoms the 2nd time compare with the symptoms the first time?

How was your paraesophageal hernia diagnoised?
