Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

Surgery for hiatal hernia provides relief from acid reflux symptoms.
But if the symptoms persist after the surgery, then it may indicate a failed surgery.

A 24 hours pH monitoring test may be done to assess the status of the hiatal hernia surgery and to see if there is any recurrence of acid reflux.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
