How would I have portal hypertensive gastropathy when all blood work and ct scans are perfect?

How would I have portal hypertensive gastropathy when all blood work and ct scans are perfect?

Ask for 2nd opinion if you're not fully satisfied. ...Read more

This is an issue you must discuss with your GI doc or your surgeon if you are post Bilroth II gastrectomy. They will know all the facts and will best advise you here. Thanks ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with GERD associated to hiatal hernia; chronic antral gastropathy and acute duodenopathy. I need help understanding all this.?

Will try...: In layman's term, gerd=heartburn, where acid from the stomach goes up into the esophagus, or food tube, and irritates the esophagus.

What meaning? Nonoxyntic gastric mucosa with focal intestinal metaplasia without epithelial dysphasia & features suggestive of reactive of gastropathy

Age 58, non-alcoholic. Have liver cirrhosis due to Portal Hypertensive. Still have 40% liver working. It can be stable always or what is life expectancy?

Age 58, non-alcoholic. Have liver cirrhosis due to Portal Hypertensive. Still have 40% liver working. It can be stable always or what is life expectancy?

There is no "40% working" - best markers are those of synthetic function. Get the underlying cause treated if possible (? HCV), stay as healthy as you can. But no, unlikely to remain 'stable always'. ...Read more
