"Hernia investigation"

About: The Royal Liverpool University Hospital

I have been undergoing investigations which found a hiatas hernia. After long waiting times and invasive tests I was discharged by a Dr who more or less told me to live with my symptoms. I still have severe symptoms but no further solution or investigations have been offered. I was told that my symptoms could be down to swallowing too much air! The consultant was very dismissive of my symptoms and very patronising. I'm absolutely disgusted.
