Bile In Stomach Endoscopy
I had recently had an endoscopy done for abdominal and they found that my stomach bile is not leaving my body and I was wondering if there's treatment?
Stomach content: Your liver produces bile and secretes it into your small intestine. Your stomach makes its own juice which drains also into the small intestine. Bile usually does not back up into the stomach. Bile is what makes your stool colored brown. That's how you know it's leaving your body. Perhaps your doctor meant that your stomach wasn't emptying well? This condition is called gastroparesis. ...Read more

Well, you had a good: Look at the upper and lower gastrointestinal system back in February, but it doesn't sound like you really have a diagnosis yet. This is the highest priority.

Continue working with your doctor to make the diagnosis and implement effective treatment. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Lots of possibilitie: These symptoms sound like irritable bowel but other possibilities exist such as gallbladder disease. A daily fiber supplement or probiotic may be helpful.

Specific vs general: "Gastritis" = stomach inflammation."Bile gastritis" = stomach inflammation from bile, but as there may be changes w/o inflammation, clinical term is "bile gastropathy.

How invasive is an ERCP endoscopy? If an EU was preformed but nothing of note showed up what are the chances of being scheduled an ERCP if issues with the liver gallbladder and bile ducts are suspected? Is gallbladder removal more common than ERCP?
It's invasive: It's not as invasive as surgery but it can have some significant complications therefore it's done only if indicated. MRCP is often used as first test in place of ERCP and is not an invasive test. Most of the patients with gallstones have gallbladder removed without a need for ERCP ...Read more
Vomiting for 3mths, lap chole month ago, clear endoscopy, motility meds are helping but still no dx. What could it be? Also have ulq pain and bile
You need a good doc: If a cholecystectomy did not solve your vomiting, your gall bladder was likely not the issue or there are complications. Unless you are severely diabetic, poor gastric mortality is not likely the problem but I would continue the motility meds if they are helping. You need to see the surgeon who removed your gall bladder ;/or a good GI specialist to sort this out as it can be quite complex. ...Read more
Endoscopy found some gastritis and small hiatal hernia. Did not mention gerd, Gp said I have reflux, would report say acid or bile reflux if so?
The gastritis esophagitis can come from the reflux of acid or bile.
The pylorus should keep bile distal.
The esophageal sphincter should keep acid out of esophagus in general.
BUT these can fail.
The PCP knows your symptoms and adds the endoscopy to the facts and will try to guide your treatment. ...Read more
Would not show up: Gastroparesis is a slow emptying of the stomach. It is a problem with the function of the stomach, not with how it looks. Since it still will probably look normal, the doctor who does the endoscopy is not going to be able to diagnose gastroparesis that way. You need an emptying study. ...Read more

Growing stomach: A rumbling or growling stomach is due to muscular contractions of the intestinal wall called peristalsis.
