what to eat w/large hiatal hernia? everything causes pain
i would love some advice that anyone could pass on to me. i have a large hiatal hernia that is presumably the culprit, causing me horrible pain when i eat, just about anything. i am having an upper GI endoscopy later in the week. had one before that was supposedly ok, but a new doctor is going to try it again. this was in sept. last year, and has progressively gotten worse. my biggest problem at the moment is that i am getting such horrible stomach aches. i've been taking prilosec, but my doctor says i cannot take it till after the test. i guess i'm to have a Bravo monitor for two days, and you cannot take this kind of medication for a week before.
my goodness, i thought i had stomach aches before! since i stopped taking it, any food makes me ill. last night i ate a small bowl of chicken noodle soup, and threw up three times. i still have a sore throat today. i'm not even hungry any more, but i crave food so bad, it makes me cry lol.
has anyone had a similar experience? have any suggestions what to eat?
good grief...i can't even eat chicken noodle soup. that's what you're supposed to eat when you're sick! i feel extremely sorry for myself lol...and i love food, so this is really miserable.
