Not GERD: Gerd typically causes heartburn and regurgitation. It can also cause inflammation in the esophagus, but not the stomach. Amtrak gastritis can have many causes, but gerd is not one of them. Call your GI doctor for clarification. ...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

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?

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.
Avoid Alcohol, NSAID/Aspirin/Cigarette/Spicy and fatty food. ...Read more

Also, blood work for hpylori ig G and IG m and still for HPYLORI x 3 samples And blood work for celiac disease. You may benefit from a ppi like protonix (pantoprazole). And a gluten free diet.

Is a gastric band erosion common?

Is a gastric band erosion common?

Gastric band: Band erosion is a very unusual complication of a lap band. It is thought to be related to either an undetected injury at the time of the original surgery, or related to patients 'mistreatment' of their band including continued smoking, regular vomiting, and over tightening of the band. Often the patient has been struggling with their band. Sometimes may experience a sudden lack of restriction. ...Read more

What can help recover minor gastric erosion?

Avoid the cause: If you know the cause of the erosion- alcohol, aspirin, motrin, advil, (ibuprofen) alleve- I would say to avoid these medications. Try to find out the cause from the treating doctor. I diet low in fat and fried foods and low in caffeine may help by not further irritating the area. Ask your doctor if he wants to prescribe a medicine for the erosion. But first and foremost, find the cause. ...Read more

Is there any tips to increase my weight. I m 5'7" and my weight is58. I have slow digestion prob & gastric(no erosion anywhere).

3,500 kcal = 1 pound: I assume you're 58kg so your body mass index (http://www.Nhlbi. Nih. Gov/guidelines/obesity/bmi/bmicalc. Htm) is normal at 20.0. Check w/your doctor to be sure your thyroid (and rest of you) is normal. Then eat 500cal more each day than you exercise in order to achieve excess of 3, 500cal/wk to gain 1 pound each week. Consider mediterranean diet which has evidence of long-term health benefit. ...Read more

Dr said I had slight gastric erosion after endoscopy. Everything else was normal. Biopsied the area and it came back as normal. How can that be?

Dr said I had slight gastric erosion after endoscopy. Everything else was normal. Biopsied the area and it came back as normal. How can that be?

No test is perfect: Sometimes mucosal pits or dents can look like erosions, and on stomach biopsy prove normal. Sometimes, tiny gastric lesions are targeted for biopsy, but surrounding unaffected tissue is obtained instead. Your doctor may be suspicious of erosive disease & will be gratified if you respond to his empiric treatment of it. Certainly express your concerns to the treating physician if still symptomatic. ...Read more
