Hiatal Hernia question

on 9/11/13 6:04 am - MO

I had an Endoscopy done, and as I expected, I have a hiatal hernia.  Has anyone's doctor in this area not performed the WLS because of the hiatal hernia?  Or have they delayed your surgery because of it?  Thanks!  :-)

It is VERY common to have a hiatal hernia and many Dr's probably expect to find them. Mine wasn't found before surgery, but found one in my revision surgery, so it was fixed at that time too. I haven't ever heard of anyone not having surgery due a HH, that is just another item they will fix during your surgery! Good luck!

You're correct.  Thankfully I found out at my follow-up appointment that I have a medium sized hiatal hernia, and that it (can) be fixed during the weight loss surgery, so that was a relief to hear.

Thanks!  :-)
