3 months post op. Nissen/laprascopic, robotic, hiatal hernia repair. Recently experiencing painful, debilitating gas& diarrhea. Is this normal?
Not from the surgery: It is very unlikely that these current symptoms are related to your surgery. By far the most common cause of diarrhea is viral infection (enteritis, or gastroenteritis if it involves nausea/vomiting). With any diarrhea, weight loss, dehydration (feeling like you're going to pass out when standing), or fever lasting > 1 day would be cause for concern. Otherwise these things tend to resolve. ...Read more

Unclear: If your are referring to a para esophageal hernia, which is a type of hiatal hernia, it could be responsible for the pain. Sometimes the colon is herniated in to the chest as well, and this could be responsible for the diarrhea, but it is less likely. See a general or thoracic surgeon with experience in laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair for a consultation. ...Read more
Went to the ER with a lot of blood in my diarrhea. They did a CT scan w/ contrast. There is mild diffuse wall thickening of the descending colon and parts of the sigmoid colon. Also noted was a umbilical hernia 1.3cm. what could cause the blood ?

But in general, i doubt the unbilical hernia is causing all those symptoms. Good luck at the appt. ...Read more

Can a hiatal hernia cause pains or discomfort? My dr says I have one but it isn't causeing my intestinal issues. That is unknown still.
"Yo-Yo" stomach.: One mechanism that prevents reflux of food or acid from the stomach up the esophagus is the fact that the pressure within the abdominal cavity is higher than the pressure in the stomach. If the stomach "yo-yo's" into the chest cavity through a hiatal hernia, the negative pressure within the chest cavity changes this pressure gradient, favoring reflux. ...Read more
