How do you repair a hiatus hernia?

Are you tired of feeling like your insides are about to burst out of your chest? Do you want to banish the discomfort and embarrassment caused by a hiatus hernia? Look no further, because this article has got everything you need! In this hilarious yet informative piece, we’ll take you through all the steps necessary to repair that pesky hernia.

What is a Hiatus Hernia?

Before we delve into how to fix it, let’s first understand what a hiatus hernia is. Essentially, it’s when part of your stomach pokes through the hole in your diaphragm where your esophagus passes through. Why does this happen? There could be many reasons ranging from age-related weakening in muscles or excessive pressure on the abdomen.

Once you have identified that fleshy lump popping up around where there’s never been one before (it’s really not difficult actually), make an appointment with the doctor who will confirm if indeed- congrats! You’ve just given birth.

Step 1: Altering Your Eating Habits

To fix anything inside our body, we must start with what goes into it – our diet. Avoid foods which produce too much acid as they can aggravate symptoms and cause more damage. Some examples include: spicy food, acidic fruits such as oranges and lemons, chocolates etc.

Here are some harmless replacements:

Choose low-fat options
Whole-grain pasta instead of white spaghetti
Almond milk for cow’s milk
Oatmeal cookies instead of regular biscuit favorites

Step 2: Ward off Bad Habits

Bad habits die hard but repairing a herniated area requires certain restrictions; these drugs fight some good battles but ultimately come up short.

Some common bad habits associated with hiatus hernias are:
Heavy alcohol consumption
Smoking cigarettes
Lying down after a meal.

Avoiding bad habits mentioned above and regular exercise may help to aid in recovery.

Step 3: Lose Weight

You need to lay off the pie if you want to go back for seconds, we mean being healthy is important but also- snacks! However, losing some of that excess weight can reduce pressure on your diaphragm which eventually reduces chances of further complications. So put those running shoes on and hit the streets!

Step 4: Medications

People should not self-medicate symptoms because people are stupider than they look. Doctor-prescribed medication goes a long way when done correctly.

Here is a list of medications prescribed:
1. Antacids — These help neutralize stomach acids in cases where acid reflux has occurred.
2. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) — These drugs “turn off” all the tiny pumps in your stomach which produce unnecessary acid.
3. H2 blockers – Good news people suffering from ulcers or GERD who have tried before unsuccessfully with PIP’s

Frequent intake of medicine acts as an accurate dose limit.

Step 5: Surgery

When other modes do not aid it’s time resort to surgery though advance technology has made using robotic techniques more effective.
