I've been on Nexium (esomeprazole) for 17 years and stopped it a few weeks ago. Before i started it i had gastric and duodenal ulcers. Will these return?
Possibly: Ulcers in the duodenum and stomach are usually caused by excess acid production. Nexium (esomeprazole) lowers acid production and thus decreases ulcer formation. Stopping Nexium (esomeprazole) may cause ulcers to form due to increase acid production. After 17 years, your body may have charged and ulcers may not form after stopping nexium (esomeprazole). There is no guarantee. ...Read more

It will be hard to p: Metaplasia can be caused by any number of irritants. In the duodenum, it could be related to bile exposure, acid exposure and unknown causes. It will be very hard to pin point the cause. But you already know it is there, so better monitor it regularly through your gastroenterologist's supervision. ...Read more

What causes mild inflammation and gastric foveolar metaplasia in duodenum. On biopsy. No h pylori ? No medications.
Secretions: Foveolar hyperplasia and metaplasia is a response of one epithelium to injury or as a reactive pattern. This is most often seen in the stomach. However, if there is irritation (chemical by secretions from the pancreas or liver) or inflammation (gallstones, alcohol, etc), you can get metaplasia in the duodenum. In general, helicobacter pylori don't grow in the duodenal ph. ...Read more
What inhibits gastric contractions: secretion, somatostatin or distention of duodenal stretch receptors?
Why are you asking?: Its either because you're in school for something in which case you should have the resources to answer your question OR it's because you're doing way too much research/thinking about a situation that you don't really understand.

I had egd shows localized nodular mucosa duodenal bulb and hyperemic gastric body.I also have an adrenal tumor on right side. Is this cancer?
EDG findings: Adrenal tumors are often benign, ct/ultrasound is often beneficial in the determination. Your egd findings suggest gastritis (erythema) , and nodular duodenitis. Both are usually benign in your age group. Occasionally a biopsy of these areas may warrant repeat endoscopic evaluation in the future if the pathology suggests tissue changes that could be premalignant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I do the duodenal switch with a BMI of 27.5? Had gastric bypass 7 yrs ago. Gaining weight again. I exercise, but my stomach fits a lot of food!
No: Duodenal switch will not work in a patient that has undergone gastric bypass, since the food stream no longer goes by way of the duodenum. If you are gaining weight after a gastric bypass, you should see your surgeon or a specialized GI physician, who can determine the cause for weight gain. This is usually due to enlargement of the connection between the stomach pouch and the intestine. ...Read more
If they have a gastric ulcer or one in the duodenum, can they have pernicious anemia due to the stomach of duodenum being destroyed somewhere?
Possibly.: Pa is associated with antibodies that attack cells in the stomach. Besides interfering with B12 absorption, the stomach can develop atrophic gastritis, an inflammation of the stomach that results in the loss of all glandular tissue and scarring of the stomach. But ulcers are not a sign of this, and definitely not duodenal ulcers. The B12 problems come first, other stomach issues later. ...Read more
Bypass or switch: Duodenal switch with biliopancreatic diversion (dsbpd) is done far less frequently than gastric bypass in the us. It tends to cause excessive malnutrition which is why gastric bypass (lrygb) is preferred and is the most commonly performed operation. I have had to reverse dsbpd patients who were malnourished and have never had to do that with bypass patients. I would recommend gastric bypass. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
