Operated for hiatus hernia. Burning sensation in oseophagus while lying on bed. Why?

Hi I had an operation for hiatus hernia 2 years ago and have on-going symptoms that when I'm lying in bed
I get a hot burning feeling stretching from my osteophigus (the tube that takes food into your stomach) right down to my bladder! I only get relief when I get out of bed.

Thanks for writing to us.
The burning feeling and the stretching feeling that you have at the lower end of the esopahgus could be due to a post surgical scar tissue in the area. Erosion of the esophageal mucosa can also cause these symptoms.
