This is Dr. David
this sounds like a huge hiatal hernia.
most likely this will need surgery to fix.
however, at your age, surgery can have risks.
are you obese? obesity can increase intra-abdominal pressure which can push the stomach up into the chest.
I am 5ft 9in and weigh 11st 7lb and generally fit
then, hopefully you can have surgery to fix your hiatal hernia.
do you have an appointment to see a surgeon yet?
I am due to go on a cycling holiday in France in 10 days. Should I cancel this? No I have an appointment with my GP on Fri
it would probably be best to cancel it
it is up to you if you still want to go.
you probably won't be able to eat very much given your bad hiatal hernia and bad acid reflux.
so I'm not sure how much fun you will have on the cycle holiday.
Thank you for the advice
you are welcome
best of luck to you
