They do enlarge or expand as tissue stretch.
Scarring and strictures can occur so gastroenterology evaluation and egd can help clarify.
Reflux treatment is important as well as elevation of head and head of bed when lying down, small meals nothing late or right before bedtime, and medication. ...Read more

I had an ulcer, it healed. I'm still getting consistent nausea. All that seems to be left is a small hiatal hernia and gastritis. What gives?

I've been diagnosed with hiatal hernia, diffuse erosive gastritis, and h pylori infection. Are there other remedies aside fron the meds and diet?

Meds are better: The conditions you describe are serious. Diet and over the counter meds may help some.

Endoscopy found some gastritis and small hiatal hernia. Did not mention gerd, Gp said I have reflux, would report say acid or bile reflux if so?

Not necessary: The gastritis esophagitis can come from the reflux of acid or bile.
The pylorus should keep bile distal.
The esophageal sphincter should keep acid out of esophagus in general.
BUT these can fail.
The PCP knows your symptoms and adds the endoscopy to the facts and will try to guide your treatment. ...Read more

Barium meal today was normal apart from small sliding hiatal hernia/ oesophagitis and mild duodenitis, h pylori was negative also. Still scared it is stomach cancer, is this a reasonable fear. 22 yr m?

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
