Hello Mr. lybrate-user, We understand your concern and worry. Did your doctor tell you that you have infection in your stomach? Please elaborate on that point. If you are experiencing the symptoms of GERD, please take your medications as prescribed regularly. And above that please follow this advice: 1. Your BMI being on the higher side, please consider reducing weight as obesity is one of the precipitating factors for the condition mentioned. 2. Keep consuming tea and coffee to the minimum 3. Avoid spicy and oily food or keep it to a minimum. Please prefer to have a bland diet atleast until you are in remission. 4. If you have any addiction like tobacco chewing, smoking or alcohol consumption, please seek some professional help to stop them. 5. While sleeping at night, use a pillow to keep your head at a level above your body. This will reduce the reflux at the night time. 6. Certain medications should also be avoided. This would depend after reviewing your case more thoroughly. To answer a part of your question, yes hiatus hernia if associated with an established GERD is to be treated promptly and is one of the indications for surgical treatment for the same. Please ask your doctor regarding your status.

A]] cases of hiatus hernia need not undergo surgery. The majority of them respond well to conservative medicat. Rabiprazole is a good drug to start with and subsequently more drugs ca be added. A few will need surgery. This can only be decided on examining the patient
