I've had awful acid indigestion for a number of years now. Last April I had a gastroscopy and I was found to have oesophagitis stage A. I was prescribed a course of Omeprazole for several weeks, but the reflux continued and this week I've had another Gastrocopy, where it was discovered that the Osophagitis has advanced to grade B and that I have a hiatus hernia which is 7cms.
I visited my GP to discuss and was informed that I'd just have to take Omeprazole for life.
I really don't wish to take these tablets long term, but was informed that there's no option because of my Osophagitus and the risks involved.
I'm wondering whether I will be able to have surgery to repair the hernia? GP informed that it isn't necessary and it's one of those things I'll have to live with. .
Just wonder if anyone experiences similar and has been able to go down the surgery route?
Will the fact that I oesophagitis help my case.
I think I'd prefer to save up and have the procedure done privately than be on those tablets fir life.
Thanks if you can offer advice.
