Ask Dr. Gott 12/18

DEAR DR. GOTT: I was recently hospitalized with a hiatal hernia. I was informed that at my age, 89, the doctor did not wish to perform surgery. Instead, I was advised to eat smaller portions of food and to eat more than three meals each day. I didn't mind, for my appetite has diminished. I weigh 125 pounds and am 5 feet 2 inches tall. Do you have any suggestions?
