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.

Is a 6 cm hiatal hernia large?

It sounds big, doesn't it?
Treatment of Esophageal Hernis depends more on the symptoms it might be causing. Some people may have very large EH, but if they have no symptoms, no one would look, so maybe there are all sizes of EH that we don't know about.
The usual reason people come to the doctor is symptoms and so they are treated conservatively - meaning "keep it simple". If that treatment doesn't work, then it's time for something more aggressive - up to and including surgery.
I have been told by surgeons, that a surgical repair often fails, so they are willing to try lots of other options first. New techniques are being developed all the time including laparoscopic surgery (small slit in the skin and a "scope" put in to repair it), and robotic surgery with some better outcomes. If your symptoms are bbaaaaad then it doesn't matter how small it might be, if your symtoms are easily relieved with diet change, or a pill for a few days until it's better, it doesn't matter how BBBIIIIGG it is.

This is the Mayo Clinic website. I like to use it because it has very complete, easy to understand information on many different diseases and conditions, including a section on what to ask your doctor during your first appointment.
Other sites to look at are Cleveland Clinic, and the National Institute of Health (NIH, As opposed to some hospital sponsered sites, these will have no commercial or marketing stuff added on, and they will discuss all types of treatments, and not just the one that the Hospital wants you to have so they can pay off the huge expense of some robotic technical wonder that might be no better than a bottle of Tums.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Hiatus hernia simptions

A hiatal hernia can have no symptoms at all if not severe.

Otherwise there may be:

pain in abdomen or lower chest
irritated cough

It is best to see a doctor, as all these signs can have other causes, and there is one type of hernia that can become quite dangerous.

What is a hiatus hernia

Google it.
A hiatus hernia or hiatal hernia is a type of hernia in which the upper part of the stomach protrudes into the chest cavity through the esophageal hiatus in the thoracic diaphragm due to a tear or weakness in the diaphragm.
The most common cause is obesity. The diagnosis is often by endoscopy or medical imaging.

Could hiatal hernia result in severe retching - 4 episodes over about three hours - salad dinner with chicken five hours earlier

A hiatus hernia has been blamed for many things but I don't remember it being blamed for your food-poisoning-like symptoms.

I suggest you hop over to and ask your question again.
