Dear Doctor. I am a XXXXXXXX singer and university teacher, who has lost my voice because of a hiatus hernia (4 cm). I have pains in my throat (it feels like metal) and when I sing and talk something comes up. The Dansih doctors will not give me surgery, because they can not find acide in the PH test. The throat doctor (at the opera) has told me that I need that operation and he has recommanded me to go abroad if the XXXXXXXX doctors will not help me. The give me medication, and I have a diarea all the time and feel very bad.

My husband often goes to India - he has been to hospitals in India aswell and this sprig he will go to Bangalore for work. He would like to know if you can give me surgery. And how much it costs. I have had the manometri test - it was normal.

Than you for your help and answer.

Best regards
