I don't mean to interupt but I need a little advice. I have a hiatal hernia. I have had it for years. I can even pin point whenit happened. Food poisonig from Taco Bell. I felt it rip. I have had the endoscopy and it is definatley there. Anyway... My current situation is this. I was in a bad wreck and I am basically totally disabled right now. The main position that I stay in is with my back propped up on a couple of pillows on the couch with pillows under my hip and leg. Since the wreck my hernia bothers me a whole lot more. If I can sit up straighter it eases up, but this often is not an option because of my injuries. In the past Zantac and Tagamet have been of great help, but don't seem to work very well now. Because of being out of work so long I don't have any insurance to pay for anything except what is from the wreck. Can anyone give me any suggestions to get some relief when it acts up? When it hits, I have chest pain right in the middle below my throat. The urge to burp is there, but it just doesn't happen. This will go on for hours at a time.
Thanks for the help!
Motorcycle wreck 8-27-2004, 119 fx from right hip down to ankle, 9 surgeries so far. I am Thankful to God that I am alive and still have my leg.
Ones who say it cannot be done should stop interupting those that are doing it.
