Hiatal hernia

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've recently had an endoscopy which come back saying I had an Hatsl hernia, but since then I've not been getting any better, I'm constantly in pain with my stomach & lower intestine, my stools are a really dark brown if helps, I've been to A&E twice in agony to be told there is nothing they can see in my bloods, ive had a senior doctor & surgeon look me over, I've lost my apitite & find it hard to eat, when I do I burn up & feel even worse, I've been given lanzopronal for my stomach, which I don't think are working, just any advice would be great as where to go next, just had this for 3 months now & nothing seems to be helping me get better

    So you have Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), due to a hiatal hernia

    Lansoprazole should help - what time of the day do you take it?

    I was like this for three months. 71 days. Checked evrything. 11 doctors and hospital. Swallowed the cable twice. Suddenly a doctor said, we try a trippel course. Next day burning stomach was gone. 3 weeks later burning back and shoulder was gone. The face is much better but still not completely gone. Just the neck left. And the skin is red. I have taken 8 different helicobacter test, all where negative. But the last doctor said, its helicobacter, i promise you he said. The test is very often false negative.. i was in so much pain that i didnt want to live anymore, but now its completely gone. But because of this i have a little bit of anxiety because im afraid of getting this back. Because i dont think people doesnt now howe much it hurts whens this goes on. 71 days with pain is a long time. Sorry bad english. IM FROM Norway..
