Found hiatle hernia pre surgery not sure if they will fix it during surgery or not just yet....

Is this something I should recommend to the Dr . .

Would you say recovery after for someone with this is more dangerous or difficult

I had a Hiatal hernia as well when I got my sleeve done, they will most likely correct it while they are operating on you, I didn't know what it was til after I had the surgery, best of luck

I had a hiatal hernia. The doctor said he would fix it if it was big enough. Apparently it was big enough and he fixed it. My recovery has been normal and pretty easy. I was on pain meds for 5 days. I felt fine after that just lower energy for the first 3 weeks after surgery. I started exercising full on 4 weeks after surgery (Crossfit/equinox). This has been the best decision of my life even though towards the end of the mushy phase I was hating life a bit.

I didn’t know I had one until after my surgery. My doctor told me he fixed it. I haven’t had any reflux since. I’m a happy camper.

I have a hiatal hernia also. My surgery date is March 26 I'm having a revision from lap-band to RNY. Doctor is planning to do it all in one surgery including the hernia repair.

      Surgery is set for 10/4/21. At this point I haven't had any coffee, alcohol, carbonated drinks, or caffeine in general for over a month. Too bad it just hit pumpkin spice season! I'm missing my coffee!

      I bought a box (7 servings) of peaches and cream oatmeal (used one) and pumpkin spice pancake mix (none used).  I no longer want them.  The exp dates are 4/2023 and 10/2022, respectively.  I live in Manatee Co, FL.  Will take $10 for all.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.
