Hi @recovery, can you clarify? The TB medication was stopped after 8 months because you developed stomach issues. Now you have returned to taking TB meds and antacid medication to try and control both the TB infection and manage the hiatal hernia. Correct?

Are you seeing both a pulmonologist and GI specialist?
