After undergoing an Endoscopy, I was diagnosed with GERD, which has been "silent" up until recently, as well as a "small" HH.
I did have many many years of spontaneous sever abdominal pain, along with indigestion. I have been on Prevacid which doesn't seem to help with the nose and throat burning. Switched up to Prilosec, so we will see how that goes.
My question is, which test do they use to measure the exact size of the HH? Is it the impending test?
I am 32 yrs old, so I would like to avoid being on pills for the rest of my life. I am very curious in finding out more information about the latest procedures they are doing - LINX, Stretta, and TIF. They all seem to be not possible with large hernias.
Thank you all so much for your feedback.
