I have been having chest pains and knew I had a hiatal hernia. Now I am understanding it is a paraesophageal hernia after a visit to E.R.
I’m trying to navigate the health care system for help without being thrown out of the medical system as a crazy person. I have had a hard time being an out of town patient. I have tried to be compliant. i need answers and I have been very worried.
At this point, I’m ready to walk away from western medicine. My labs are good, yet I have mechanical problems and a complicated medical history.
I’m trying to get help now for this and I feel ridiculous explaining this to those who don’t understand GRDS.
Anyone out there post duodenal switch ever have a paraesophageal hernia? My grds was in 2004.
I’m glad I had it and I’m grateful to my surgeon. I just didn’t know that this would be a complication for me or how it could be more serious than I realized.
