Customer Question
I had surgery for...

I had surgery for a very large habitual hernia nine months ago and just lately it hurts to lie down and I feel like in could vomit all the time

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

It just started like three days ago and nothing right this minute helps

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I don't think so I can't eat only about two tablespoons of soft food like applesauce

You probably meant hiatal hernia. Well it seems as if its hurting you again. You will need following measures for helping this;

1. Take antacids like omeprazole 40mg twice a day

2- take drugs that enhance gastric motility e.g motilium, erythromycin

3- smaller meals ,avoid large meals, soda drinks and tea/ coffee

4- yogurt would help

If nothing helps then you will need to go for H pylori testing, if that comes back positive, we would need to eradicate that with a course of antibiotics.

I hopeit helped.

Let me know if you have any further queries.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
