Hello all has anyone here had to go back and get a hiatal hernia repaired again? If so how did it go did it change your surgery any for positive or negative. Did heartburn get worse or better any information you can offer is good. Thank you

Hiatal hernias are a little tricky once you've had the DS. It might be worth your while to call/Skype with Dr. Keshishian in CA. He's done many successful ones.

So i just had my hernia repaired still healing from it. My dr was able to do it laproscopicly. I still worry though if it came back once it will come back again . I did not go through the gas pains the first time since i was cut open for the ds. I have to say this feels more painful this time around. Feelings are funny i burp and it hurts feels like an elephant is sitting on my chest till the air passes very painful. I walk alot that helps but wow!

There was a lady on I think the gastric sleeve forum who's also had to have multiple hiatal hernia repairs, her doctor kinda shrugged his shoulders and told her she must be prone to them. Not sure that would make me feel any better![emoji13]

I think what is freaking me out is that when i first had the surgery and hernia fix i knew what to expect. As time went by i noticed i could eat alot more and it felt off to me so i started asking folks around my time frame with my type of surgery how much they were able to eat and a couple were similar but most ate alot less. I now believe due to my hernia i was able to eat more. Now that its fixed it feels like im starting over which is kind of a blessing to help me lose the rest of my weight. The dr. Did say there would be some restrictiction he also said it would not last long. What freaks me out is they only had me on liwuid for a few days now soft foods until i could tolerate reg foods again. However the amount i can eat is like 2 oz like it was when i first started which is okay as long as i knew that this is normal and things will get better. My mind is just racing i will see my dr. On wed for follow up i am just one of those patients that if its rare and negative it usually happens to me.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
