Hiatal Hernia

I have a hiatal hernia — those are the results of the endoscopy. Because it’s not too bad, they are not recommending surgery. They expect to continue to treat my acid reflux with Nexium. I am to follow up with the original doctor in about three weeks. The hiatal hernia is causing the acid reflux and the hyperlink to WebMd will explain it in detail.

I do not have any signs of cancer, ulcers, varices, tumors, or polyps. Nor do I have any serious signs of esophageal erosion. All of that is good news. The bad news is I must continue on my white, bland diet.

Thanks to the few of you who expressed support or actually called/wrote to see how I was.
