My dr. confirmed I do have a hiatal hernia. That was about 4 or 5 yrs. ago. It’s an ongoing issue that I continue to deal with, but I’ve found that my belly (just below my breast) is getting larger. Could that be the result of growth on my hernia? I am, of course, going to make a follow up appt. for my hernia, but wondered if anyone found that their belly area grew in size due to a hiatal hernia? Your thoughts please.
