I have developed alcohol intolerance, i vomit a lot after 500ml beer, spirits areintolerable. Im 19, hadstomach ulcers, will i ever be able to drink?
I still have continued abdominal pain, after an endoscopy revealed gastritis and a hiatal hernia. I've also had a hida scan that had normal results. Thursday I have a gastric study. I take Prilosec and Carafate daily. What can I expect my gastro doc to do
After eating i feel bloated and have excessive gas i have had h-pylori before i take prilosec daily by prescription?
I was diagnosed with an ulcer, and i will have an upper endoscopy soon. If you have cheese pizza 13 hours before hand, can it mask an ulcer?
No: Pizza is a poor choice of food if you have an ulcer. It will further decrease the gastric ph making your stomach hurt more. ...Read more
Alcohol causes ..: Peripheral vasodilation, ie increase blood flow. It makes intuitive sense that this could increase blood flow should bleeding occur. I have not seen a study demonstrating that. I recommend my patients not to drink alcohol until they are healed. It would be a nice study to survey all adults who have had tonsillectomies and compare post op bleed rates with consumption of etoh vs non-consumption. ...Read more
A couple of weeks: Assuming you had an uneventful laparoscopic cholecystectomy, have resumed a normal diet, have no GI symptoms like anorexia or nausea, have no history of gastritis or liver disease, and are not taking any other new medications including narcotics, consult your surgeon during the post-op check, about a small amount of wine. If you tolerate this, like all good things, moderate the amount you drink. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can i do if i vomit any food i take in since after drinking coffee yesterday (around 10 hours ago)?
The last time i drank coffee was 3mos. ago
Food poisoning?: Most likely you have a viral gastroenteritis or food poisoning from Staph aureus, Bacillus cereus or Norovirus. Treatment is supportive. If ginger tea/ginger ale and slow-deep breathing don't stop the vomiting you need medication to stop it. If unable to keep liquids down you may get dehydrated.

I am taking amoxicillin and Tylenol/codeine, how long do I have to wait before I can have a glass of wine?
I had a couple of beers today and 2 sips of gin, yesterday I had some beer. Can I expect alcohol WD? I generally do not drink often.
A year ago my stomach started bleeding from taking too many NSAIDS. It was cauterized and I haven't had any problems since. Would drinking wine occasionally hurt my stomach, or should I stay away from alcohol completely?
Gastric Bleeding: I admire you for being honest about taking too many NSAIDS. Do not use Alcohol if you are using following : Medicines that contain alcohol and Aspirin Medicines that contain alcohol and Indocin Medicines that contain alcohol and Lodine Medicines that contain alcohol and Medicines that contain alcohol and Relafen (nabumetone) Or using Levodopa, Indocin Or you are stressed See Psychiatrist for stress. ...Read more

After egd I have really bad heartburn. I was perfectly fine before. I have moderate duodenitis but before procedure no discomfort at all. Even on PPI.
Duodenitis: I think this is just a coincidence. The reason is because of the inflammation of the duodenum. Are there any ulcers found as well? If so you can benefit from a week course of carafate (sucralfate) to help with inflammation. Continue taking the PPI medication, and you will need a repeat EGD likely in 6 months to document if healing. Do you also have a hiatal hernia, this can cause worsening gastritis or reflux. ...Read more
Kidney?: Kidney would not be my first concern. I think you should consider looking at your GI tract. If your symptoms are limited to times when you drink coffee, I would simply avoid coffee. ...Read more
Probably not: If you were given any type of sedation - and the vast majority of persons having a colonoscopy are - then it is unlikely to have left your system yet. Having alcohol coudl prove deadly. Wait longer before drinking; you were probably given some written instructions about this when you departed the colonoscopy suite - read tehm carefully; and later on if you do drink - do so in moderation. ...Read more

Still possible: Crohn's disease affects small bowel, primarily. So this part of the GI tract is not accessible via egd or colonoscopy. So the diagnosis is made on clinical basis and barium studies of the small bowel. You can consult a gastroenterologist for further clarification. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
All i see are horror stories for egd. Can i be fully sedated instead of consciously? Will it be frightening? Will i be in pain/anxious at home?
Yes,: Normally you receive conscious or moderate sedation, but yesterday the gastroenterologist asked me to help him with a particularly anxious patient on benzodiazepines, the versed had little effect but Propofol worked well. The patient was very pleased, didn't even know we did anything and did not require an artificial airwar. ...Read more
EGD is pretty quick: Upper endoscopy uses an optical device on a flexible, steerable tube to examine esophagus, stomach, ; upper small bowel. Often, biopsies are taken to rule out barrett's esophagus, eosinophilic esophagitis, h.Pylori bacteria, celiac sprue. A diagnostic study as such takes less than 5 minutes, during which you are sedated. Therapeutics (dilation, cautery, polypectomy, etc.) adds a few minutes more. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Barrett's????: Barrett's esophagitis is a condition where chronic acid reflux from the stomach has irritated the esophagus to the point where there is an increased risk of cancer forming at the site of irritation. People with barrett's require regular (yearly or more frequent) monitoring with an egd (esophogastroduodenoscopy) by a gastroenterologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
