I have a small sliding hiatal hernia. Not sure what size doctor never told me. Would the tif surgery be better for a small one or is nf still the way to go. I am on 60mg of dexilant which keeps gerd at bay, but I live in fear and hate taking PPIs at 24 for the rest of my life. And does fixing your hiatal hernia help prevent gastritis also or will that always be there no matter what.
