I am not sure what you mean by wind. I was scoped with a hiatus hernia and they are going to do a nissen fud. in two weeks for me and fix the hernia. First scope they found no hernia. Second scope a regular hernia. Now I am told I have a large one. Lots of back pain and other symptoms.

hey kev,

I have a sliding hiatal hernia and don't have your particular problem. Are you sure it is from the hernia? I am not sure which of my symptoms can be attributed to hernia and which to GERD & LPR. I do know that surgery for this type of hernia is not routinely done unless it is extreme, causing serious problems. Your problem does not fall into the serious category....:):)
