When a portion of the stomach pushes up into the chest, it develops a hiatal hernia. If a hiatal hernia causes significant symptoms or is likely to result in problems, surgery may be necessary.
Surgery is not always necessary for hiatal hernia patients. With the right medicine or lifestyle modifications, the illness may be manageable for many people. For individuals who require surgery, a variety of treatments are available; the Nissen fundoplication is the most popular.
Since most Hiatal hernias are symptomless, therapy is frequently not required. People with milder symptoms of gastro esophageal reflux disorder (GERD), such as heartburn, acid reflux, or acid reflux, may be able to manage their illness with medication or a change in lifestyle.
Most patients rarely experience severe pain after laparoscopic surgery, but they could feel uneasy in their chest and abdomen and have temporary trouble swallowing.
If the anesthesia wears off quickly after a laparoscopy, the patient may return home that day. If not, patients could stay in the hospital overnight and usually be discharged the day after the operation.
