Together: The presence of hiatal hernia is not contraindication to having a sleeve done at the same time.

Very few surgeons may add a fundoplication. ...Read more

Rct on #10 by endo 2months ago. Pressure in upper jaw into sinus, headache, nausea. Doc says wait for jawbone to rebuild but apico possible. Wait months with these symptoms or get apico surgery?

Differential Dx: Personally, I doubt the headache, nausea and even the sinus pain is related to an unresolved infection on #10, especially if the rct was done by an endodontist and two months ago. I recommend you do two things. First, have the endodontist re-evaluate your tooth. Seek a second opinion if necessary. Second, see your primary care physician for a medical evaluation. ...Read more
