I have had a hiatal hernia for some time......how does/would it affect the gerd situation????
A doctor in AZ had me on Nexium for several months...NO RESULTS
Then on a special diet........no better........
A Chiropractor put the hernia back in place..............BUT that didn't last very long..........have to practice putting it back in place myself....
This situation really gets in the way of taking any pills, etc.

Yes the Hernia will allow the stomach to push up through the diaphram not letting the valve in your throat to close which allows the acid to come up causing heartburn ask your Doctor about Laparascopic nissen fundoplication I'm going in next week for it all information I have read says it work really well for most people! Good luck

I had my nissen over a year ago for a hiatial hernia with reflux; life is much better now. Good luck with your surgery. The only advice I can give you for post-surgery is to be patient with you progress in eating different foods. It was about 4 months before my diet was pretty normal, but I still can't eat beef or stringey meat like pulled pork, but the surgery was definitely worth it,... no daily pain!
