Medication: if you have known esophagitis and a hiatal hernia then likely you are already are on a medication like Protonix or Nexium (esomeprazole). If not, this kind of medication, known as a proton pump inhibitor, can be helpful. Eating more slowly and smaller, more frequent meals may help the burping after eating. If symptoms can be controlled with medication many times surgery for the hiatal hernia is not necessary ...Read more

Very unlikely: It sounds as if you have had a pretty thorough evaluation, barium swallow, upper endoscopy (egd). Given you age, lack of evidence of malignancy on egd, you should feel confident that this is not stomach cancer. Your gastroenterologist probably has you on some proton-pump inhibitor or histamine blocker. Give this time to work. ...Read more

How much time is required to treat esophagitis grade A and Hitus Hernia. how long medicines are to be taken.

Try acid blockers: Most esophagitis will likely reflect injury from reflux of stomach contents (gerd) & should typically respond to acid blocker medicines. If you choose this route & you derive no relief after 2 weeks of acid suppression treatment, then seek medical evaluation since esophagitis may be more severe than anticipated, or due to a variety of non-reflux causes. But, hiatal hernias are not cured by pills. ...Read more

Dx with h. hernia and erosive esophagitis. Told to F/U in 4 wks, take omeprazole. Which type of pill, DR or regular? Btw I am not overweight.

Start w regular: Minimize alcohol intake. do not smoke. Don't lie down after eating, avoid large meals, avoid carbonation, and don't eat before bedtime. Antacid liquid or chewables can also relieve some symptoms. Usually reflux can be managed non-surgically. Keep in touch w your doctor. You may need repeat EGD in 6-12 months for follow up. Good luck. ...Read more

I hv sliding hiatus hernia with gerd, esophagitis la grade b, duodanitis.I don't have any symptom now like heartburn etc.Does it mean, medication NT rqr?

Stay on meds: I would use anti-acid producing medication until you know the damage to your esophagus heals. This means another endoscopy. If the esophagitis comes back after healing and stopping meds, may need to consider an anti-reflux procedure which could be done endoscopically or surgically. Hope this helps, and you have a merry christmas! ...Read more
