Relieving Hiatal Hernia Pain
Had hiatal hernia surgery. Can't
pass gas or go to bathroom. I have so much bloating, pain, nausea and pressure. How can I relieve it?
After surgery...: If the surgery was just recent and you cannot pass gas at all and in pain you need to go to the emergency room right now. This could be something very dangerous and without directly giving you an exam I cannot make a guess. Don't wait please, go right away. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall thru which the inner lining protrudes thru, creating a sac. Organs from within the abdominal cavity, such as the intestine, can protrude thru the hole and get stuck in the sac.

Is it possible to feel a hiatal hernia "pop"back into place?Get severe cramping for days stretching helps little until "pop" feeling then temp relief.
I don't think so: Hiatal hernias slide, not pop. Perhaps you have some displaced costal cartilage, which is normally present between the ribs and the sternum ("breast bone"). Hiatal hernias are very common and are usually assymptomatic, although heartburn and sometimes regurgitation may occur. Sometimes very large hernias of the stomach into the chest cavity may cause pressure and discomfort deep in the chest. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

See a doctor: How do you know that the pain you are feeling is related to a hiatal hernia? A hiatal hernia is usually not painful unless it is so large that most of the stomach is in the chest.

Not likely surgery : A sliding hiatal hernia is not unusual at all. In a young person like you it is somewhat unlikely to be the cause of pain. It depends also on how large the hiatal hernia is.

Ultimately try to not eat too close to goin to bed and chew your food well. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Painful spasms and twisting pain directly under left ribcage on bending. I have a hiatal hernia..any relation?
I have a "small" hiatal hernia, and lately have had pain and swelling in the xiphoid process and around to my back.Could these be related?
Doubtful: The esophageal hiatus (the hole in the diaphragm through which the esophagus passes) can stretch out to allow some or all of the stomach to go into the chest is located just in front of the spine. It would not cause swelling near the xiphoid process. Maybe excess gas in the stomach or colon could cause that. It doesn't sound specific to any one diagnosis. Hope this helps! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
