|In July I had an endoscopy and was told I have a small hiatal hernia. I find it extremely painful the majority of the time and I want surgery. My specialist refused any surgical options because he said it is too risky. I am 20years old weigh 105. I used to be about 120-130 and worked out regularly. I have not been able to gain back the weight I lost from the pain of the hernia and I want surgery.|
