An appendectomy is surgery to remove the appendix. The appendix is a small, finger-shaped organ extending from the first part of the large intestine. It is removed when it becomes inflamed or infected. A perforated appendix can leak and infect the entire abdominal area, which can be life-threatening. An appendectomy is done under general anesthesia, which means you are asleep and do not feel any pain during the surgery. The surgeon makes a small cut in the lower right side of your belly area ...Read more

Careful on the long: Be careful with the a ppi as a 19 year old man. With prolonged use, they can cause rebounding (addiction) and seem to cause osteoporosis.

Excessive hiccup/burps that regurgitate food/acid + acid reflux for several weeks. Scared it's stomach cancer. 21 year old male, not the best diet.
Chronic sore throet also a cough and hicups with a burp 5+ weeks sore throat reflux if not reflux what could it be not diagnosed?
Sounds like reflux: Putting all the signs together, your throat irritation results from the reflux acid coming up the esophagus and causing painful symptoms. Treatment should include antacids (Tums) and some form of proton pump inhibitor daily like Omeprazole. These both can be obtained over the counter, but a doctor's care will improve your outcome! ...Read more
Just got appendectomy done a day ago. Home now. I'm bloated so it's heavy on my chest once I burp it gets better. Is this normal?

Small meals, bland, liquids- soups.
Your surgeon will give instructions I think.
Right sided intermittent sharp pain (3wks post endometrial ablation.& appendectomy) also feeling full fast when eating & burping alot (bowels working)?
Right abd pain: Right sided abdominal pain after an appendectomy, especially with symptoms you describe may indicate continued inflammation of the tissues at the appendectomy site, with partial paralysis of your intestinal motility. See your surgeon who performed the appendectomy for an exam. ...Read more
I'm having trapped gas pain on my right side. I have been passing gas & belching. I just had a laparascopic appendectomy 19 days ago. Is this normal?
Yes: With laparoscopic appendectomy there is alway a certain amount of inflammation in the region of the cecum and adjacent rt. Colon. There can also be a minimal degree of ileus or lack of peristalsis in the bowel causing gas accumulation and retrograde motion of gas or belching. One should wait several wks for resolution. ...Read more
My 1 month old baby has a reflux but sometimes when she wakes up she coughs is it because she didn't burp before sleeping? Reflux causes cough right?
Yes it can: And most babies have reflux, they outgrow it as get bigger, you had the answer in your question: burp your baby well after feeding, if wet burps are a problem, try reflux precautions: thickening feeds, feeding smaller amounts more frequently, raising the bed 30 degrees, feeding the baby at 45 degree angle, etc, enjoy your baby ...Read more
I have acid reflux and have a pain just under my sternum and I feel like there is something stopping me from burping any ideas ive had it for 4 days.
Acid reflux: Are you on any medications? How old are you/ For reflu would try prevecid 30 mg a day and ranitidine 150 mg a day also for the first 2 days try maalox, 1 tablespoon twice a day. For a male over 30 years old (and if you are under 30 and use cocaine) we always have the heart in mind and so would follow up today at urgent care /doctor for EKG. ...Read more
I've been having on and off pain under my breastbone, in my ribs and my shoulder blades that gets a bit better when I burp. Could this be acid reflux?
Under sternum pain: Yes it is possible. You could see if over the counter omeprazole relieves the symptoms. Avoid caffeine, alcohol spicy foods smoking, fatty foods. In any event would get checked out by doctor urgent care this week to make sure it is not other causes like gallbladder, constipation (rare if normal BM), food intolerances (may cause reflux), eosinophilic gastritis, rare and unlikely cardiac. ...Read more
I often get sick to my stomach, more times than not it is accompanied by juicy burps. Sometimes it feels better when I burp. I have Acid reflux, could this be the cause?
The symptoms you describe are often associated with Acid reflux. However, this could be associated with gastritis. Try eating smaller meals and don't eat within 2-3 hours before you go to sleep.If that works, it is likely to be acid reflux.

My 6 week old screams his head off when you burp him then is relieved when he burps. Could this painful scream be associated with acid reflux?
Most have reflux: Most babies have a bit of reflux as their musculature in the opening of the stomach is not as developed yet. A couple things that may help are: do not wait until the baby is very hungry, they also swallow air when crying and get more burps. Feed smaller more frequent amounts and try burping after each ounce, using maybe slow flow nipples. ...Read more
Can acid reflux feel like sometimes there's something stuck in my throut no pain bit of burping had a endoscopy 2 yrs ago all clear iam 65 and fit ta?
I've never been able to burp my whole life, I've done the odd few...It affects me everyday, nausea, acid reflux/gurgles, is there an operation for it?
Help I keep burping and air is releasing through my mouth making a little puff sound. Does this sound like acid reflux?
Get checked out!: You are assuming you have reflux. Our brain can't tell the difference in painful signals from heart, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver, pancreas, bile ducts of liver, or gallbladder. So your belching could be reflux, ulcer, gastritis, gallstones, slow stomach emptying. A good dr will ask questions like what brings it on, makes it worse/better, how long it lasts, associated problems. See dr! ...Read more
My 10 year old son doesn't eat large amounts of food and we follow a reflux diet. We can't seem to shake the rotten egg breath, no burps, no gas.
Sometimes when I burp I regurgitate some I know this is a sign of acid reflux but canit cause some pain on the left side of my chest also?
Yes: One of the biggest differentials for chest pain is GERD/reflux. Although it is a big differential and it seems like it could match your presentation, we wouldn't want to miss anything with the heart. I would get examined either way and hopefully your doctor can rule out any cardiac cause. Good luck! ...Read more
GER reduction: Certain foods, activities, medications and conditions that increase pressure in your abdomen can trigger reflux. An over the counter acid reflux medication may help these symptoms, but see your doctor for evaluation if you are not relieved or if your symptoms change or worsen. Untreated acid reflux can cause esophageal strictures, respiratory problems, ulcers and throat disorders. ...Read more
Maybe: First line therapy would be acid blocking medications such as h2 blockers or proton pump inhibitors. If those do not work surgery to correct the hernia may be needed. Given that you are young, i'd consider surgery sooner than later as we are just learning some of the long term issues with chronic anti acid medication. One example is increased osteoporosis due to decreased calcium absorption. ...Read more

For a few months, I have been experiencing shortness of breath, more when I am sitting or lying down (improved by exercise) and frequent forced burping with occasional acid reflux. Could all of this be caused by reflux or is it more serious?
Without ↑information: & detective work, impossible to say at a distance. Yet your theory (you're the only one who can perceive your symptoms) does make sense & you demonstrate an understanding of basics of differential diagnosis methodology. Like everyone, you are your own primary medical decision maker (physician if you will), regardless how competent, or not. Beware, reflux (long term) does drive esophageal cancer. ...Read more
Could I be taking the wrong acid reflux medicine if I am still constantly burping and having chest pains? I have had acid reflux for over a year now and I have been taking zegerid OTC since I don't have health insurance. Recently I have been constantly bu
Have: Have you had an endoscopy to look at your esophagus? That sounds like very severe heartburn and you should be completely evaluated. I understand your insurance concerns, but please seek out a local clinic (there are free clinics that can often help you so ask for that). If the zegerid isn't working, then you could also add carafate (sucralfate) which works a different way (it coats the esophagus/stomach) which may help you. Also as you know, if you are overweight then losing weight will help, sleep with your head elevated, and don't smoke or drink which increases stomach acid. Please have a medical evaluation by a GI doctor as soon as you can. ...Read more
