Could it be possible to have more than one HH ?

My first one felt like the diaphragm broke on the left side of my chest, and the second coughing fit 2 months later made my stomach go up into my oesophagus in the centre of my abs (the "small" HH).

Is it possible they missed the first one?

How was the first one proven? I think because they slide, they don't always spot them on endoscopy. I was told my first scope was normal. Three years later I had another, the exact same symptoms having come back, and they said there was a hernia. I never understood how they could later attribute my symptoms to the hernia without implying that the hernia must always have been there!!

Herina's can get missed, some dr's have trouble locating the GI junction starting point oppose to the end of the esophagus.

Hernias can come and go. My endoscopy showed a large hiatus hernia but barium swallow showed none at all
