I don't think that it causes bowel problems because I have one myself. I do have some bowel problems from time to time but that's from the digestive issues that I also have. I have done a lot of research on the hiatal hernia since I have had it and I have never came across anything that said it causes or contributes to bowel issues. Check with your dr if you have one. Most of my knowledge is self thought through research because are so expensive to get to for a question hear or there. hope this helps some
