Been having upper abdominal pain, had colonoscopy and endoscopy. Reviled a hiatai hernia. Is the hernia causing the upper ab pain?

Maybe: Hiatal hernia is very common, but they are not all the same. Large ones can certainly cause pain, along with difficulty swallowing or reflux/heartburn. Patients commonly attribute many nonspecific symptoms to a hiatal hernia, and more often than not the hiatal hernia is not the cause. See a general surgeon with experience in hiatal hernia repair for a consult if its that bad. Best of luck! ...Read more

You need to be seen quickly if signs of bleeding: black stools/ vomiting 'coffee grounds'. ...Read more
