Hernia surgery hiccups

Common Questions and Answers about Hernia surgery hiccups


Avatar n tn poor you, hiccups after a hernia, hiccups are a lung spazm, and have nothing to do with a hernia, appart from being extremley annoying and painfull, there i doubt would be any relation to the hernia.
1103592 tn?1274757161 Grrr- at least baby sounds great (got to hear her hiccups on doplar!). Guess I'll goggle hernias until my surgery consult in 2 weeks.
Avatar f tn this can be irritated by the surgery, by inflammation, by a bile leak (though you likely would have much more pain and it's been a while since surgery. hiatal hernia and reflux do sound like the most likely culprits for your symptoms. an EGD (or upper GI scope) will be able to determine if you indeed have hiatal hernia and if there is erosion in your esophagus from acid refluxing. for now, stay on the nexium, or one of the acid reducers.
Avatar f tn For the last few years I have suffered from random hiccups. Well, they seem like hiccups, but right before the hiccup, I feel acid reflux or indigestion, and then I get what seems like a random hiccup. I had my gallbladder removed last year. They seem to be becoming more frequent, and I am just wondering what could be causing this. Any ideas? Both of my parents suffer from Hiatal hernia, could this be the cause? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I am still on Protonix for the hernia although they were never able to confirm the hernia with an upper GI x-ray (they say that is common if the hernia is small... also I am short so my torso is short) and they will not do an endoscopy because of fear that I could bleed to death if something were to go wrong due to being on the blood thinners. I have tried all of the suggestions...
Avatar f tn Although the surgery was for hernia and GERD they were hoping between the anesthetic and lessening of the irritation from the acid it may give a rest to the diaphragm and calm the hiccups .Also hiccups can be a side effect of surgery and he seems to do the opposite that they expect they were hoping it would stop them. I will check out the mayo link you sent thank you.
Avatar n tn i get them every time i eat and its been two months sice surgery and everyone laughs because they last for like 15 min it really weird molly
Avatar f tn What meds r u taking, mayb the nausea is from them? hmmmm hiccups.....do u have reflux?...or a hiatal hernia? Some of us do feel like this afterward and may have another issue going on.....have they looked at u since u reported feeling like this? DO u have HA's in ne position?...or just when upright?...after some activity? I am happy to welcome u to our little family, so sorry for the reason u had to seek us out.
Avatar f tn Hi, I also had this problem after gall bladder surgery. How long ago was your surgery? Did you have any stones in your gall bladder? I started taking digestive enzymes to help with the digestion of my food and that helped with the excessive gas and burning for a while. Things progressively got worse. My doctors couldn't tell me why this was happening or what was going on. Six months after surgery I developed fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn Cardio DR says there benign so now I'm wondering if the whole acid reflux/hiatal hernia is putting pressure on my heart or vagus nerve thus causing the palpitations. Is it worth going to a gastro Dr for further testing about this theory?
Avatar f tn I've been having some really strange pains recently that I wonder if may really be due to a hiatal hernia. I have abdominal tenderness, burping, hiccups, some chest discomfort, and some slight nausea. I've had some really weird experiences after eating or drinking recently. One time, I had pain in the upper part of my back and the back of my neck. Another time, I drank water quickly, and my back and shoulders started aching pretty bad.
Avatar n tn I might go for a laparoscopic fundoplication surgery, for I have got hiatal hernia and severe GERD. Does anyone know what risks are involved, and what can happen to me afterwards? Will I have difficulty swallowing? And other things I have read about? If you have done this surgery, please tell me about it. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn Mike is out of surgery. Took 6 hours and NS said everything went pretty well. He's pretty sick on his stomach. We hope to get to see him soon. I'm a very fidgety wife right now! My daughter took this picture this morning in preop. Made my heart melt when I saw it!
Avatar n tn Nissan Fundoplication Complications-Gerd-Hiatal Hernia-Celiac-Dumping Syndrome-Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome No surgery is safe. Surgery may be successful, but that doesn't make it safe. My husband had this laparoscopic surgery in 1999 and continued to have all manner of complications, belching, hiccups, nausea, vomiting, acid reflux, pain, cramping, bowel problems, difficulty swallowing and breathing, chronic pain and fatigue, and diminishing "happiness".
Avatar n tn it could be a hiatal hernia. I was having some digestive difficulties - on-going [ off & on ] for many months - they were : belching, bloating, heartburn, sensitivity at the waist, intestinal gas, hiccups, difficulty in swallowing capsules, overall fatigue, full feeling at base of throat, pain or burning in upper chest, pressure in the chest, pain in the left side of chest. sometimes i would have all of the symptoms i just listed and sometimes only one or two.
Avatar f tn I went and had a gastric emptying test (all normal) and an upper scope confirmed the nissen is loose their is esophagitis present as well as my previous hernia (which was most of my stomach in the chest cavity.) is back. I guess my question is what can be done to effectively relieve the pain and reflux. Oh and i have also been belching a lot and hiccups as well. It seems to have started when i tried to keep a pt from falling.
Avatar m tn Since six days after Nissen Fundoplication ( correcting Hiatus Hernia) I am having continuous Hiccups especially during talking and laying on bed , It started just after second day of surgery . Also I have excessive foaming of saliva while walking . I f any body have similar experience please share. The surgeon told it will subside gradually.
Avatar n tn I am wondering if this is because I had to be on my stomach for this surgery. Also I am noticing that I am getting the hiccups everyday when I only ever had them twice a year before. It just seemed like I should ask someone in the know. Also expericing some jaw shakes. For no reason my jaw will just start to chatter like I am freezing cold. I have also sent some other women to you. One is named Shelb and the other I saw Georgia Peach.
Avatar f tn For almost 10 years since the age of 16 I have been experiencing heartburn type symptoms. I've had numerous doctors tell me it could be heartburn, hiatal hernia, and/or a peptic ulcer. I have an appointment for an endoscopy coming up to figure out the exact cause. I've been prescribed omeprazole 20mg which does not even seem to make any kind of dent in relieving symptoms as well as over the counter medications.
973882 tn?1258684904 I wonder were u ever told u havd a hiatal hernia?.....the hiccups could be from that if u do. ...or it is med related. Oh that first shower was great....in fact, I took baths....didn't like the water hitting me in the head right away...and I am short.....and my balance was still off. BTW.....I was told to use baby shampoo...did they tell u to use a certain kind ot avoid scented shampoos?
Avatar n tn Described symptoms are definitevely GERD. Now, the bitter taste in the mouth suggests gallbladder disorder with biliary reflux. If the gallblader itself is OK, it still may be biliary ducts (biliary dyskinesia or sphincter of Oddi dysfunction). There are gross differences in diagnosis of stomach condition. Hiatal hernia may come and go, as hernia can slips up and down, so " now you can see it now you don't".
Avatar n tn My father (70 YO) had fundoplication surgery for acid reflux and no longer has hiccups. They are no fun, but don't worry about it being something more serious.
Avatar f tn Well, I had 3 gallbladder attacks in less than a month and I knew I had to do something about it because the pain was so severe I thought I was doing to die. Now on to my present problems. It's been almost 4 months since my surgery and I'm still having problems. Abdominal tenderness, burping, hiccups are a few symptoms. Plus, I'm getting somewhat severe upper abdomen and back pain after consuming alcohol. I know there is still something going on with my health and I'm very scared and worried.
Avatar f tn Also have some right side tenderness, frequent burping, and more hiccups than usual. I've had the problem with alcohol before and after the surgery. Worried that maybe something is seriously wrong. All my trouble drinking alcohol coincides with the same time frame that I've been having stomach issues. Anyone have a clue what could be going on? I have an appointment with a gastroenterologist in a little less than 2 weeks and I plan on talking to her about this.
Avatar m tn belching, bloating, heartburn, sensitivity at the waist, intestinal gas, hiccups, difficulty in swallowing capsules, overall fatigue, full feeling at base of throat, pain or burning in upper chest, pressure in the chest, pain in the left side of chest. sometimes i would have all of the symptoms i just listed and sometimes only one or two. some days i would feel pretty much ok. i read about hiatal hernia and I tried the self-massage technique described here and felt immediately better.
Avatar f tn WOW ....I just had surgery for hiatal hernia and gallbladder and the symptoms you describe are the exact ones I had !!!!!!! It sounds like an esophageal spasm ...feels just like the heart.... I would get more palps sitting and especially after eating or right before a bowel movement !!!! I would get the racing heart then feel gas or need to go to the bathroom......see a gastro doc .......I also had reflux disease from the hernia.......
Avatar m tn i went to the doctor and he gave me prevacid that didnt help, so a few days after i had severe pain and went back to the emergency, there they did again and ultrasound it was negative, urinalysis negative, blood work negative, an other EKG negative, so they let me go after the pain went away, few days after more pain now the pain went from the abdomen to chest to back all at same time, this happends right after i eat anything and i also get hiccups and start burping a lot.
Avatar m tn I am now having to drink some sort of steroid to get my esophagus into the best shape possible so I can have the surgery to fix the reflux. I have a hiatal hernia. I have a child that was born with a hiatal hernia. even on prevacid and carafate, her esophagus was getting ulcerated at 8 months old--she had a fundoplication at almost 10 months old--and they discovered a good sized hiatal hernia that had not shown up during two upper GIs and an endoscopy.
Avatar n tn who gave me Thorazine to stop the hiccups and belladonna for the gas and I haven't belched or had hiccups in 2 weeks. Specialists don't know everything but some old country Dr's still do, thank heavens. Anyway, just a thought for some of you to try. It sure has brought me back to life. The only side effects I have are dry mouth, and(if I take them at the same time), I get really tired. Spread them out and there seems to be no interaction.
