So, Today I Found Out That...



Recommended Posts

I have a hiatal hernia.

I had my upper scope done and the Dr found it. He said he would repair it during my vsg surgery.

Have any of you ever had this?

I heard that it makes recovery a little more painful or difficult... just trying to hear from people who have lived it before me. Thanks in advance!!! :)

My surgeon found mine during surgery and fixed it. I didn't even know I had it. It didn't make my recovery more painful or difficult at all.

I had a hiatal hernia and I was fine. I was back to work in seven days and I didn't think my recovery was bad at all...

I had a hernia repaired too; didn't know I had one. Recovery was easy peasy. I imagine if the hernia is bigger (you'd know if you had one probably), it may affect recovery a little more.

Mine was pretty significant and I managed to have a speedy recovery. I pray the same for you!

I just found out today, but he said it was of significant size...the only thing I knew was that I have had horrible reflux for years.

Thanks for sharing with me! :)

Yup, didn't know I had one. Dr repaired it for me. I, too, had horrible reflux for years. I haven't had to take a PPI since my surgery, BTW. Swallowing was probably a little more difficult for a couple extra days, but that is about it.

It was definitely an added bonus.

I had also acid reflux as well...the worse was when it would happen in my sleep and wake me up. I especially hated if it came thru my nose.

It's great that you don't have to take the meds for it anymore. I'm looking forward to that, for sure!

Thank you so much for telling me about your experience. It's nice to know I'm not the only one going through this and that a lot of people have had what I do and are willing to say a few words to reassure me... I love this forum!

Ugh!! That's the worst, isn't it? Nothing like waking up to that massive whole head burning sensation.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
