I have a sliding hiatal hernia, my stomach slides through gets squeezed and my ulcers are kept open and bleeding. In addition my stomach pushes against my heart when this happens and I have all of the symptoms of an heart attack.
I have a diverticulum above my stomach in my esophagus.
This occured in 1967, in Vietnam air crash. When younger is was bad enough to be hospitalized. At that time if I kept my weight down to 145 lbs or less it helped. Today at 66 years old, my weight is 185 lbs., and I can't exercise to loose weight and cannot loose weight due to many other physical disabilities.
The VA rated me 10% for this problem so they won't help.
What should I do?
