I had an upper endoscopy last year and 2012. Both were completely normal by they found a hital hernia. I have been having reflux symptoms for like 3 weeks now they are not controlled by meds.

Should I be real worried since I had normal scope last year?

Dear Mr XXXXXXX

There is no cause for concern
If your symptoms are not controlled by medical treatment and diet control , it requires reassessment by repeat Endoscopy.
This way it will reassess the hiatus hernia and rule out Oesophagitis.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care

Best regards
Dr Deepak
