I have a hiatus hernia and LPR. I am planning to have a baby in the following couple of years, not sure about the impact of the hiatus hernia on pregnancy. Should I have the hiatus hernia repaired with linx or nissen done before pregnancy or to do so after having baby. Anyone have similar experience or any suggestion? Thanks so much!

I am currently pregnant and wish I had known about surgical options before I got pregnant... if I could go back in time, I would be pursuing surgical options beFORE the dreaded heartburn of pregnancy in addition to GERD.

As long as you give yourself time to heal there shouldn't be any problem.

Take care,
