I just asked a question about a hiatal hernia in the cardia. I have another question about erosion in the antrum. Can some answer my question, please?

Hiatal hernia: Not sure what your question is, but a hiatal hernia is when the normal opening for the esophagus in the diaphragm stretches out, and allows the stomach to herniate in to the chest. The top part of the stomach next to the valve at the esophagus is called the cardia, and if this were the only part herniated, it would be a very small hernia, not responsible for ulcers in the antrum. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Doc, I have erosions in both antrum and duodenum, and I undergo ubnormal excretion, what ever I take, they come out like dysentery.

Doc, I have erosions in both antrum and duodenum, and I undergo ubnormal excretion, what ever I take, they come out like dysentery.

Diarrea ulcers: Simon, have you had previous gastric surgery with a vagotomy, because if so this is "dumping syndrome" and you should see the surgeon who did surgery. Has Zollinger-Ellison syndrome been excluded? Otherwise, rule out infectious causes and excessive treatment with H2 blockers like Tagamet, Nexium (esomeprazole) etc can cause diarrhea. If you are losing more water than intake you shd go to ER thanks ...Read more

Gastritis moderate severe non-erosive in the antrum and body of the stomach how long does it take to heal? Using Prilosec protonics and pepcid (famotidine)? had v&p in 1976 is the acid not shut down properly?

Gastritis moderate severe non-erosive in the antrum and body of the stomach how long does it take to heal? Using Prilosec protonics and pepcid (famotidine)? had v&p in 1976 is the acid not shut down properly?

Approx. 8-12 weeks: Assume the diagnosis was made by EGD. Biopsy for H. Pylori must be taken. If it was negative then PPI and H2 blocker as you are taking is the right treatment for 12 weeks. And if symptoms continue, one can continue for longer period of time.
Avoid Alcohol, NSAID/Aspirin/Cigarette/Spicy and fatty food. ...Read more

Endoscopy revealed diffuse moderate inflammation characterized by erosions & erythema in gastric body & antrum. Biopsies taken. Is cancer likely?

Endoscopy revealed diffuse moderate inflammation characterized by erosions & erythema in gastric body & antrum. Biopsies taken. Is cancer likely?

Wait for biopsy,,,,,: At this point it's inconclusive to say and a clearer idea of this can be obtained once the biopsy results come back. Most stomach cancers are characterized by raised and thickened ulcer margins which you apparently don't have. Other cancers there are associated with blood disorders like lymphomas and have gastric thickening. Based on this cancer isn't likely but again, the bx gives more info.. ...Read more

What does simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum mean?

What does simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum mean?

Need followup: Hyperplasia is the first of 3 stages in the process of tumor formation, the next stage is dysplasia and then the neoplasia = tumor. There are a few types of neuroendocrine cells in the stomach, depending on which area of the stomach, those in the antrum are G and D cells. So, neuroendocrine hyperplasia of the antrum means that some of those cells are undergoing abnormal proliferation (growth). ...Read more

What kind of followup should simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum have?

What kind of followup should simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum have?

Nothing special: I see that you're already taking vitamin B12 and perhaps this has to do with your stomach no longer making acid, explaining the neuroendocrine hyperplasia. Ask your physician how often you need to be endoscoped for whatever you were endoscoped for. Best wishes. ...Read more

Granularity and erythema in the antrum after endoscopy...What does it mean?

Granularity and erythema in the antrum after endoscopy...What does it mean?

Antritis: The stomach makes acid. Acid digests some foods especially proteins. It also produces a protective layer of mucous. If that mucous layer is decreased it exposes the lining of the stomach to those acids. Things that decrease that mucous layer are stress, aspirin, motrin, advil (ibuprofen) and other like drugs. With exposure to those acids the lining of the stomach begins erode causing injury to the lining. ...Read more

Endoscopy results today - mild erythematous/exudative with no bleeding in antrum. What does this mean??

Endoscopy results: endoscopy reports are difficult to interpret without seeing the results of the clinical setting and any biopsy results or photographs taken. Having said that, the description you give suggests that there was a mild amount of redness and mucus in the last portion of the stomach. The significance of this is unclear, and can best be determined by talking to your endoscopist. Good luck. ...Read more

Dexlansoprazole 60: May, there is about 55 better result with 60 at 4 weeks the nwith 30 dose. By 8 weeks are similar.. Did they check for h pylori at the time of EGD? As that may be a factor in ulcer as well.
