After my upper GI Endoscopy - doctor found a hiatal hernia and redness caused by GERD. He said he would not recommend surgery since it is not severe. My life has been completely ruined due to these problems, Since my symptoms have gotten bad, I have a low tolerance to exercise, out of breath easily, elevated heart rate and blood pressure (could be pressure against vagus nerve?). I forgot what it feels like to feel good/normal. I am stomach pains, nausea most of the time. I've tried most medications for a period of time and the side effects were worse than the pain I had.
for those of you that have had the surgery, would you do it again? If you did have issues with your vagus nerve and increased blood pressure/rapid heart rate, did it help after the surgery? Thank you!!!
