  • Below link is about this.  My mom had one that did not need treatmnet.  Your sister's sounds serious enough to see a doctor.

  • They found my hiatal hernia when I was about 10. They put me under for an upper endoscopy (sore throat after but that's all) and I didn't need follow up treatment, just amended my diet to reduce heartburn like symptoms. She needs to see a doctor. I haven't heard of one busting, but it could just be really aggrivated where she needs strong anti-acid meds.

  • Oh, when I went in I asked them for a copy of the pictures they took. I wanted to see what it looked like. Depending on the doctor they may if she is interested.

  • Gosh, I hope that you got the advice you needed. Good luck to your sister, I hope she is feeling better soon. I wish I had something to tell you but I have nothing on this, just my best wishes.
