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

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 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? 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
