My Dr did a microscope light to look in my stomach I have a medium hiatal hernia and ulcer I'm on stomach pills. I need to know if I can help to heal it with out surgery

FIXYA volunteers don't have medical degrees, and advice is from the internet or their personal opinions. So many people want to ask questions to complete strangers on the internet, who may be self-serving or mistaken, and have no obligation to follow up with you to see if your medical condition is improved. So fair warning to you and other FIXYA questioners:

You can justify getting a second opinion from another Docter, and your insurance plan should have a provision to pay for it, especially if surgery is even being considered.

Years ago, Doctors discovered that many ulcers were curable with antibiotics.

Also, rarely is surgery needed for Hiatal Hernias, according to the internet medical information sites, but they are not a substitute for a professional medical opinion.

Quoting from the link shown:

How is it treated? If you have no symptoms, you don't need treatment.
If you have mild symptoms, your doctor may suggest lifestyle changes and perhaps nonprescription medicines. Here are some things to try:
  • Change your eating habits.
    • It's best to eat several small meals instead of two or three large meals.
    • After you eat, wait 2 to 3 hours before you lie down. Late-night snacks aren't a good idea.
    • Chocolate, mint, and alcohol can make GERD worse. They relax the valve between the esophagus and the stomach.
    • Spicy foods, foods that have a lot of acid (like tomatoes and oranges), and coffee can make GERD symptoms worse in some people. If your symptoms are worse after you eat a certain food, you may want to stop eating that food to see if your symptoms get better.
  • Do not smoke or chew tobacco.
  • If you get heartburn at night, raise the head of your bed 6 in. (15 cm) to 8 in. (20 cm) by putting the frame on blocks or placing a foam wedge under the head of your mattress. (Adding extra pillows does not work.)
  • Do not wear tight clothing around your middle.
  • Lose weight if you need to. Losing just 5 to 10 pounds can help.
If you often have symptoms or have severe symptoms, you may have GERD. Lifestyle changes may help, and your doctor may prescribe medicine. In severe cases, surgery can be used to pull the hernia back into the belly.

Good day,I Candro Mabuza working as a riggerheavy lifting,after working for along time without rest i started feeling pains then i went to see a doctor and he said its a hernia,what causes hernia?

incorrect method of lifting heavy weights
a hernia is where the stomach lining is torn and the gut is allowed to come out through the tear
they can be in any part of the lining and be in various degrees of pain
The worst is a strangulated hernia where the bowel comes out through the tear and is cut off by the lining resulting in a serious situation requiring immediate surgery or *****
They are all repairable by a surgeon so don't delay in getting the operation

What methods can be used to remove a hernia, besides open surgery. She is 74yrs, has enlarged heart with asma.

you don't remove a hernia
you sew the torn edges back together and use a mesh to bind the weak section to stop it happening again
It may be possible to do it with key hole surgery as that is the least invasive surgery and may not affect the heart to a large degree
Fixya site is not a medical forum so contact your doctor and performing surgeon for exacting details

How long would it take to recover after surgery for inguinal hernia? My dad has been scheduled to undergo repair surgery for inguinal hernia. While the doctors have given us their opinion on how long...

Surgical procedures to repair Hernia these days could be completed in less than an hour or two in cases of inguinal hernia. Just as with any surgical procedure, the body needs time to heal after a hernia surgery. In most cases, patients are allowed to leave the hospital on the same day as the procedure unless there are any unexpected complications. Recovery process is gradual. If your work does not involve much physical exertions, you could be back at work in 10 days or less. But make sure you do it in consultation with your doctor. Gentle exercises are advised as part of the recovery process. But you'd have to be patient until your body fully recovers from the surgery before you decide to start working out or unduly exerting yourself.
