Im Just waiting on results as to whether I have a type 1 or higher hiatal hernia from the barium swallow. I am sure I do have at least type 1. Althought there is a possibility I don't. Who knows what the hell could be causing all this darn burping and indigestion at the gym...
Does anyone know if its dangerous for me to workout and stress my heart unnecessarily with all these issues at the gym and still just lift the weights? Its just messed u when people look at me as if im struggling breahing from this thing aggravated by some other possible thing like inflammation or an ulcer.
Does anyone know if type 1s are ever repaired? I heard that by some key measures a person can reduce and strengthen those muscles especially with diet and timing of diet, early sleep, and some nights fasting and resting propped on an angle locks the stomach back into place after a while. Is yoga also a way to strengthen the hiatus muscle? If anyone knows of other ways, please kindly share if you know.
And if not, what is the best possible type of surgery for this type or other types other than the nissen fundoplication. Once I saw a picure of these two white bio-pads inserted under the suture area as two joined together to also eventualy become part of the organism and absorbs organic material. Does anyone have more info on this?
Also, is there other new surgerys out there called linx and some other one with lasers and another one with a ring of beads? I really hope the techniques are improving because I am disturbed at the mortality rats I have read on HH surgeries on the net. Are those reliable accounts?
But I am thinking of changing GI docs. Why did my GI doc tell me "hiatal hernia's do not cause chest pain"?? Straight Quote word for word.
On a bland as hell diet now because if it is a type 1, then will try to strengthen the LES/hiatus because it has weaned away in the past.
If it is a type 2 or higher I am not delaying a second more. But might not be that because its only this other thing going on causing burping that's making my chest pain/tightness more frequent possibly from a type 1.
But if someone can please guide me as to whether to just stop working out - are people with Hiatal hernias not allowed work-outs? Or is that just type 2 or higher? What is safe her because some days I can lift more and longer, other days I can barely walk up the stairs without chest tightness, burping air and indigestion, sometimes contents wanting to come up. I wish this barium swallow result will tell me what the hell is going on here... but if anyone can provide quicker info that would help lots.
