I had an ulcer, it healed. I'm still getting consistent nausea. All that seems to be left is a small hiatal hernia and gastritis. What gives?

I had an ulcer, it healed.  I'm still getting consistent nausea.  All that seems to be left is a small hiatal hernia and gastritis.  What gives?

If the ulcer recurs, ask you GI doctor about zollinger-ellison syndrome, an uncommon tumor that produces excessive amounts of gastrin, a hormone that produces acid. Also, gastroparesis is another uncommon disorder diagnosed by nuclear medicine gastric emptying study. ...Read more

This will allow you to receive the nutrients throughout the day without feeling nauseated or heavy. This will prevent the heartburn if you eat something every 3-4 hours throughout the day until the ulcers heal. Have you taken antibiotics for the h.Pylori? ...Read more
