Re: Hatial hernia vs paraesophagal hernia

Never stay with a doctor that you're uncomfortable with. Get a 3rd or 4th opinion if needed until you're sure of the diagnosis and the skill of the physician. My grandma has a hiatal hernia that she let go for too long to operate on and it causes her a lot of health problems now. So, if you do have a large hiatal hernia, the surgery is best route before the condition worsens. They do it laprascopically now (only tiny insertions instead of a long cut) and wrap a portion of your stomach around your lower esophagus and seal the ends so it supports the valve better to prevent the acid leaking out from the stomach into your throat. Based on my grandma's diet for her condition you need to stay away from acidic fruits (oranges, grapefruit) and tomato products (chili, spaghetti sauces) and have a lower sodium intake.

Good health to you and I hope it works out well for you.
