Is loosing weight initially associated with early symptom of ingenuial hernia? When abdominal wall weakens does blood test show anything?

Hernias: Hernias can protrude with weight loss. The fat that was plugging the opening may shrink and allow fat or abdominal organs to protrude. You should start with a physical exam to see if your hernia can be felt. A general surgeon or general internist can examine you. If it is small, an ultrasound or ct scan can image the hernia.

I saw a GI doc that said a gagging feeling in lower throat when bending over is not a symptom of a hiatal hernia (which i have). Would you agree?

Maybe GERD: Agreed. Of the 70 million americans with reflux, about half have symptoms without esophageal inflammation. Some may have gagging, cough, hoarseness. Perhaps behavior ; diet modification (answered previously on healthtap) may help if gerd is present, but my best recommendation is to follow your GI doc's advice. Afterall, he knows you best ; what your tests have shown. If questions, ask him please. ...Read more

21yrs girl found gb moderately distended multiple calculi largest 0.8cm without symptom, to be operated for hernia. Is it advisable to remove gb also?

Gall bladder surgery: Most surgeons do not like to do two separate procedures at the same time. Also the gall bladder can be removed with robotic surgery which is a less drastic operation than the old procedure. Meanwhile you should have a workup as to why you are having gall stones. ...Read more

Diagnosed with hyatial hernia and mild acid reflux, my doctors are not concerned, should I be? I am 46 and they have me on prevasid, I have no symptom

Diagnosed with hyatial hernia and mild acid reflux, my doctors are not concerned, should I be? I am 46 and they have me on prevasid, I have no symptom

No: Acid reflux, or GERD is common. Some people have hiatal hernia which contributes to this, others do not. Most of the time people with this experience heartburn. The Prevacid (lansoprazole) reduces stomach acid and should help. Also, avoid spicy and fatty foods, avoid carbonated beverages, don't eat a heavy meal before bed, try to lose if pain increases or problems swallowing, see your doc again. Good luck! ...Read more

A hiatus hernia is a: type of hernia in which abdominal organs (typically the stomach) slip through the diaphragm into the middle of the chest.

Yes: Symptoms can be very similar for both a groin strain and hernia. Usually with a hernia a physician or patient can feel a bulge at the site of the hernia. With a groin strain, no bulge is felt. However small hernias can cause significant symptoms and they can be small enough to not feel a bulge very well. A good history of the pain and exam can help differentiate. ...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?

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

I'm 32 yrs old. Had my tubes tied 5 months ago. I have a umbilical hernia. Don't see doc for 3 wks. What makes it worse? And is back pain a symptom.

I'm 32 yrs old. Had my tubes tied 5 months ago. I have a umbilical hernia. Don't see doc for 3 wks. What makes it worse? And is back pain a symptom.

Umbilical/incisional: Are you saying the umbilical hernia is from the umbilical incision for the tubal ligation? You should definitely see your doctor who did the surgery and follow up on that. You may need surgery to fix the hernia. Ignoring it makes the situation worse. Weight gain makes it worse. If the original surgeon is slow to response, condsider getting a second opinion from another surgeon! ...Read more
