I consulted with a doctor about the operation they do (forget what it's called) that wraps part of the stomach around the esophagus to correct a hiatal hernia. The doctor told me that it's generally successful, but of course there are some risks. The risks include: excessive bleeding, inability to burp or vomit and a feeling of not being able to swallow correctly.
Has anyone had this operation and what has been the outcome? How have you handled any side-effects that have occurred? I would like to avoid surgery, but maybe they'll come up with a better type of surgery someday.
We can only hope.
Thanks for any info!!!
