  1. Hello, I just joined this group about 15 minutes ago! Hoping I can find an answer to my questions. Seems I have some problems with my esophagus. Flap doesn't close properly, have acid reflux, esophagus has slowed down in moving food to the stomach, sliding Hiatal hernia, chest pain (so bad last July sent me to hospital for 5 days, they insisted it was a heart attack, was not!) I am still pre-op and am going through two more tests in 2 weeks. All the reading I have done shows that these can be repaired at the same time as surgery (from surgeon himself) but after these two upcoming tests, if they find anything else to be concerned about, will this cancel my surgery all together? My second group class is tomorrow morning and I know I won't get a straight answer since it is the nutritionists and psychologists. I just want to know what I may be facing. After I was put on hold after the "heart attack" last July until released by cardiologist on December 26th. I really don't want to go into a holding place again, and this is my biggest fear. Has anyone had a problem like this with their esophagus? I would love to hear from you. Thaks
