Dear Leonard
I think you should see a gastroenterologist to do a gastroscopy to determine how big the hiatus hernia is, and whether this is in fact the cause of the shortness of breath. You may have another underlying cause for the breathlessness like a heart problem or a lung problem. With Malignant hyperthermia one would only want to operate if there are no other options
