Sliding Hiatus Hernia Diet
Anti-acid therapy: Sounds like you need some antacid therapy to start. This should help both the gerd symptoms and the gastritis. Make sure to ask if you have H. Pylori infection as a cause of the gastritis. This needs to be treated with antibiotics as well. Forget about the hiatal hernia unless it becomes very large. Hope this helps! ...Read more

As tolerated : It's unclear why you would have a tif procedure and a hiatal hernia repair instead of the standard fundoplication and hernia repair, but either way, your diet should be as tolerated.

Big words: It means you have a small (dimunitive) hiatal hernia, and that it is able to slide through the opening in the diaphragm to be sometimes above (wrong spot) and sometimes below (where it belongs). If they are larger, they are more likely to get "stuck" above the diaphragm (and cause more symptoms). ...Read more
Foregut operation: A hiatal hernia is when the natural opening in the diaphragm enlarges to allow the stomach to migrate into the chest. If a large part of the stomach is involved, it is a para esophageal hernia. Repairing this involves closing the hole to the right size & wrapping the lower esophagus with the top of the stomach (nissen). A tube is placed in the stomach (gastrostomy) rarely in adults. ...Read more
Nope.: The hiatus is the hole in the diaphragm thru which the esophagus passes to enter into the abdominal cavity; a hiatal hernia is an enlargement of this hole. It cannot be seen nor touched on physical examination. In contrast, a ventral hernia may cause the abdomen to protrude, as can a separation of the rectus muscles very common in men who are "round"in the midsection: this is called diastasis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a small sliding hiatal hernia be repaired by just pulling the hernia down back to the abdominal cavity then tightening the diaphragm hiatus?

No: A small hernia does not have the room to twist and cut off its blood supply which is the definition of strangulation.

Consult with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can be if you reflux: Hiatal hernias often cause GERD, also known as reflux. This feels like heartburn, and over time can severely damage your esophagus. Omeprazole is a good medicine to lessen the symptoms of GERD, but your best bet for the long term is surgery. Get it done while you're still on your parents' policy. ...Read more
