I am 25 and I have been suffering from constant nausea (waves throughout the day) as far as I can remember.
In 2010, a gastroenterologist did an upper GI endoscopy and found that I have a hiatal hernia and it was quite inflamed which made her conclude that I had GERD. I am taking pantoprazole which helps with the stomach pain (I do not have heartburn) and some anti-nausea tablets prescribed by my GP. I also suffer some mild reflux (I feel like i need to burp but a warm feeling comes up all the way to the back of my throat).
My specialist has recommended me to have the nissen fundoplication. I met with the surgeaon who is very experienced in this area and said that I was the ideal candidate.
After reading everyone's stories in this forum, I can't help but wonder whether I should request more exams such as a pH test etc..
It is a very big decision that I have to take about the surgery but I do not want to go through it if I'm not sure 100% that the diagnosis is right.
What does everyone think about that ?
What exams did you have before the surgery ?
Thanks everyone for advising and helping me.
