Suggest Treatment For Hiatal Hernia While On Gaviscon
The surgery is a very good idea and very good choice.
Thank you for the query.
In my opinion this kind of surgery is the best treatment you can get. Both Nissen and LINX are very easy (low risk of complications) and (what is rare) the symptoms disappear right after the surgery. This is surprising how patients almost instantly are free from acid reflux.
Moreover, taking PPIs sooner or later causes small intestine bacteria overgrowth and symptoms of chronic gastrointestinal infection. That is just another advantage of this surgery.
The surgery can be done with laparoscopy - this makes it less invasive and the stay in the hospital is usually no longer than 3 days.
As you have Manometry test done (it is necessary to determine which surgery is the right choice so there wont be no problems with food passing after it), are young and do not respond to the PPIs treatment, you are a great candidate to this surgery.
As you probably know, bad controlled acid reflux leads to Barrets esophagus which is know to increase the risk of esophageal cancer.
So in conclusion, If I were you, I would not wait any longer and would have this surgery done.
Hope this helps.
