I am a long term survivor of Hodgkins with full mantle radiation in the 1990s. I have severe acid reflux caused by a hiatal hernia and surgery is recommended for repair. This problem started before I got sick but the radiation made it worse. I am wondering if any long term survivors have undergone this surgery. The tissue damage from radiation makes me very nervous about healing properly and not making the problem worse. In would appreciate hearing from people who might have had this procedure. Thanks.
