Hi, everyone! I just joined and am considering getting surgery for hiatal hernia (small) and acid reflux. I have an appointment with a surgeon in Florida, Dr. Sharona Ross. My main complaint, along with the stuffed sinuses, heartburn, hoarseness and feeling like something stuck in my throat, is a chronic cough. If I talk for long I usually start coughing. I am a minister and am afraid to get up and do a talk because I usually start coughing. Luckily, my husband, who is also a minister, is able to do most of the Sunday talks.
The questions I have are if coughing was a symptom you had and after the surgery did it stop? Also, what kind of surgery did you have and do you regret it? And can I drink coffee after the surgery? (I know that may sound strange, but I like my coffee in the morning.)
