Our expert says:
If your doctor suspects a hiatus hernia, you will have to use your Altosec regularly for at least 6 weeks to see if the symptoms improve, if not, you may need to be referred to a gastroenterologist for a gastroscopy to see if repair by operation is necessary. Try also to eat right: avoid gassy cooldrinks, food that ferment quickly like bread, beans, cabbage, broccoli and brusselsprouts. Take probiotics three times a day and ensure that your tummy works at least once in 3 days by taking something like Fybogel orange. Drink enough water (8 glasses a day) and eat more soluble fibre ( in veges and fruit) than unsoluble ( in wholewheat/legumes etc)
