I have a hiatail herrina with a b-ring

(1/3) > >>

Well I did a (EGD) Upper Endoscospy this late Fall, so , here are the results and what they found, I have a (hiatal hernia) with a b-ring  :(

http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/178393-overview

this occurs when a portion of the stomach prolapses through the diaphragmatic esophageal hiatus....so now we know why It's hard for me to swallow and why I have all of this acid-reflux (GERD)   :-[

so this Friday @ 7AM they want to do another (EGD) with dialation, where they will insert a balloon and pop the hernia back in place  ???

I'm hoping that this procedure will help alleviate some of my prolonged gut problems, (GERD) and swallowing problems I now have....

wish me luck  :-[  The only risk to this is perforation, but I here it's kinda null and hardly ever happens at all   :(

Hey Dennis,

Doesn't sound like fun, but I hope it solves the problem.

Positive energy heading your way.

HUGS,
