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!!
GERD (3 years and counting)
Lifelong stuff: Food allergies/intolerance, eczema, asthma
