I had my endoscopy today. I of course cried my eyes out as they gave me the anesthesia (I don't know why, but I always do!!) But of course I woke up and don't remember a thing. The doctor came in and told me they did find damage caused by GERD and that I have a hiatal hernia. He also did a biopsy he said of my intestine to test for why I constantly have diarrhea. So I'm home now with some Nexium and a script. I'm scheduled for a colonoscopy on the 29th so I won't be meeting with my doc until after that test is complete. So I'll be researching my butt off now on hiatal hernia's. Anyone have any advice or reccomendations for me? Thanks
