Does anyone know if a hiatal hernia can be missed during an endoscopy?
My first endoscopy showed a 5cm hiatal hernia. I also had the 24hr ph impedance & manometry test, which showed acid reflux.
My Gastroenterologist wanted me to have another endoscopy before proceeding with any operation. I suffer with gord and oesophageal spasms.
This last endoscopy did not show the hiatal hernia!
I am curious if anyone else has had a "missed" hiatal hernia with an endoscopy.
