a new name for Hiatal Hernia?

  1. 0
    Just a short question. I am a nurse(rn) and an NP(although I just inactivated my GNP licence-no jobs in NY). Anyway, my husband has a hiatal hernia,but his MD says it isn't called that anymore. I did an online search, but all I come up with is H.H. My husand says the doc said pre-gastric something. (this is also the same md that, when my husband asked about sexual problems he said "I least you are having sex...."). I digress. Anyone hear of another name for H.H. or is this doc full of it?

    Never heard of that...I did a search myself and all it turned up was Hiatus Hernia vs. Hiatal.

    My next question after "they don't call it that anymore" would have been "Well, what DO they call it?". But be that as it may....I work in a busy practice and see a good number of hiatal hernias. Not called by any other name, either.

    Well, at least is wasn't "you know that thing....that makes my throat burn....that hurts......you know, that stomach thing....."

    (and I betcha thought this was pertaining to the "sexual problems" part at first.... )

    Most people don't even call it a hiatal hernia. Heck, some don't even call it a hernia.

    "Thanks Doc, but whatever you wanna call it, what are you gonna do about it????"

    I just read an article about a woman whose doctor, in telling her she had lordosis, refered to it as booty butt or something like that.

    Sorry, lame first post, I started typing then forgot what the term was the doctor used. Anyway I think she plans to sue.
