As one might learn from this thread
I am having an inflamed hiatus hernia, which is
hernia in the stomach.
Medication is taking good care of it and as long as it's not inflamed, there is no pain.
Problem is; if I want to keep it that way, I need to make some radical changes in lifestyle from now on.
Changes like; no tobacco, no alcohol, not too much greasy food, not eating too late, not to much sugar, etc.
All that might seem like good things to get rid of but I see it more like I am being deprived of "life quality"...
Now, I can also have surgery and remove the hernia for good.
However, cutting my stomach open isn't what I want to do...
The stomach is the center of the body and it takes care of much more than just digesting food, like the immune system for instance.
What I want to know is:
Have you had this kind of surgery or any other type of surgical operations in your stomach?
How was it? Did you recover fast? What where the side-effects (if any)?
Do you recommend I get the surgery or might it not be end of my problems?
Extremely thankful for your input
I'm going back to the doctor on the 28th and by then I must have made up my mind on what to do next.
Peace and all the best!
