I'm a singer with "damage" to my vocal chords from intubation x3. I also discovered severe gastric reflux, Nexium (esomeprazole) how long until my voice comes back?

I'm a singer with "damage" to my vocal chords from intubation x3. I also discovered severe gastric reflux, Nexium (esomeprazole) how long until my voice comes back?

It depends : True damage to the vocal cords from intubations is rare, and permanent damage even rarer. Most sore throat take 1-2 days to get better and sometimes 1-2 weeks in the case of multiple attempts. Therefore it is usually a few days until the voice should get back to normal. If you have more detailed questions try contacting your anesthesiologist who intubated you. ...Read more

Can severe gum inflammation gums that need professionally cleaning cause ongoing acid reflux? I'm on ranitidine again

Can severe gum inflammation gums that need professionally cleaning cause ongoing acid reflux? I'm on ranitidine again

The reverse is it: Severe gum inflammation , mostly on the lingual, the inside of the mouth, can be associated with reflux. So, you need a cleaning from a dentist who knows the condition and sequelae . Even cleaning on your own has to be more thorough . you need to rinse with water after a reflux. Try plain baking soda or a baking soda toothpaste to diminish the acid from the reflux. See a dentist soon !! ...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?

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

Is Carafate (sucralfate) also good at healing esophageal damage from acid reflux?

Is Carafate (sucralfate) also good at healing esophageal damage from acid reflux?

No really: Carafate (sucralfate) is good at helping ulcers heal. If you have ulceration in your esophagus from acid reflux, then it might help. If you just have inflammation (aka "reflux esophagitis") then carafate (sucralfate) is generally a waste of time and money. It's really difficult to take (4 times per day) so I only advise my patients in whom I suspect ulcers to take carafate (sucralfate). ...Read more

Hi, if i take lactic acid bacillus over a long term (6-8 months) to reduce IBS or other stomach issues, it has caused acidity and pain in upper stomach region.

Hi, if i take lactic acid bacillus over a long term (6-8 months) to reduce IBS or other stomach issues, it has caused acidity and pain in upper stomach region.

Not likely: Typically lactobacillus is taken in a capsule that doesn't even dissolve until it gets through your stomach. You probably have another gastrointestinal issue, possibly H.Pylori in the upper digestive tract responsible for the acidity and pain. See your physician about treatment for this. ...Read more

Can i drink alcohol with a damaged stomach lining?

Sure...but why?: Alcohol hurts when you pour it on a cut on your skin, right? It will do the same thing to your stomach if the lining is damaged. Why would you not wait a little longer for your stomach to heal before pouring in something like alcohol? For now, enjoy a healthy glass of water when out with your friends--they & we don't want to see you hurt. ...Read more

Does Carafate (sucralfate) help heal my damaged stomach lining from gastritis? Also, I am on levothyroxine... Does Carafate (sucralfate) interfere with Synthroid absorption?

Carafate (sucralfate): Carafate (sucralfate) certainly may help with the healing of inflamed gastric lining and is often used in the treatment of gastric ulcers and gastritis. However, it can certainly interfere with the absorption of other medications particularly levothyroxine. Levothyroxine should be taken on an empty stomach at least two hours before other medications to ensure complete and proper absorption. ...Read more
