Endoscopy Revealed Gave Stomach

Had edg endoscopy mild gastritis found put on PPI now month later stomachs burning nausea.no gross pathology. Why did surgeon notake biopsy of gastrit?
Nausea: Not sure why no biopsy was none. Your doctor may not have felt the findings were significant. You could have a H Pylori breath test without an endoscopy. Your gallbladder could be further evaluated with an ultrasound and HIDA scan with CCK. A gastric emptying study might also be useful. ...Read more
My upper endoscopy showed everything normal except mild gastritis...no H. Pylori. I have acid reflux and take Omeprazole. Why gastritis?
False -ve H.P common:
Worldwide the most common cause of gastritis is H. pylori infection.
.Recent studies using histology alone in select patients have suggested that H. pylori-negative gastritis may be common.These data suggest that H. pylori is a possible pathogen for duodenal ulcer by duodenal colonization probably via gastric metaplasia.The use of PPIs masks H. pylori infection, increase intestinal metaplasia. ...Read more

Epigastric pain, neg H pylori but pos FOBT. Colonoscopy normal but endoscopy showed gastritis. Cause of gastritis?
Causes of gastritis: The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflamed stomach." The term is often used imprecisely to mean stomach upset, which can derive from both acid & non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, H.pylori infection, atrophic & hypersecretory problems. Start with acid blockers, diet modification, avoid alcohol/tobacco. ...Read more
Told gastritis antrum ,by endoscopy. GI said stop certain meds, those caused it. I did. Now endoscopy shows gastritis all over stomach. Now what to do?
What is the next step? Upper GI shows narrowing of esophagus just above stomach. He takes Prilosec and zantac (ranitidine). Hes 10 yrs old. Had endoscopy was ok
Peds GI: Your son is most likely seeing a pediatric gastroenterologist. This doctor will be working toward a diagnosis and determining the cause. It may require more than one study and often parents get frustrated. With the years of vomiting you may consider celiac disease, this can be blood tested and the scope biopsy proven. Other concerns would be achalasia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recent endoscope showed i had GERD and bile reflux. Hida scan and ultrasound were negative for gallbladder issues. Why do I have bile in stomach?
Some bile is normal: The stomach's outflow end is not a one way valve. It will let some bile into the stomach. The acid environment of the stomach takes care of it. When bile makes it all the way to the upper end of the stomach and backwashes into the esophagus, then it is bile reflux. This will cause irritation to the lining of the esophagus and there are no pre-made defenses to it, like in the stomach. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Endoscopy done today. Findings were...LA Grade B reflux esophagitis (biopsied)...Gastritis (biopsied) and normal examined duodenum. Meaning? TY
Inflammation: Inflammation of the esophagus can be a precursor for cancer. Inflammation of the esophagus and stomach can mimic or hide cancer. It was smart to get endoscopy. Your doctor did a good job biopsying the worrisome areas. If the biopsies come back benign, then you will be treated and observed. Well done. Your working diagnosis is inflammation which is treated with medicines. ...Read more
I did barium swallow test it suggested sliding hiatus hernia.Abt 2 yrs later i did endoscopy at another lab which showed reflux esophagitis.
Hernia and reflux: The two things you are talking about are consistant. The hernia is a weakness in the distal esophagus and this then allows acid to burn your esophagus(reflux esophagitis). For help , no caffine at night, no eating after dinner(3 hr. Before bedtime) and medication to stop acid production. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can upper endoscopy aggravate heartburn? Got scoped 5 days ago (no sedation, mild gastritis and esophagitis, one biopsy).Having severe heartburn now.
Is omeprazole-sodium bicarbonate good for chronic gastritis with no hpylori.4endoscopy, 2colonoscopy, 2 abdomen ctscan came normal except for gastritis?
I recently had a CT scan w/ contrast of my abdomen which showed gastric wall thickening. My doc now ordered upper endosc. W/ ct. Possible cause?
One possibility: Usually "thickening" of the stomach gets reported to make sure stomach cancer (rare) doesn't get missed...Unfortunately the stomach has a wide range of normal appearances including "thickened" (relatively more common) so we are left with getting an upper endoscopy...Just to be sure everything is ok. It's hard to be more precise without seeing the images. Make sure you follow up with your doctor. ...Read more
