Post Surgery Stomach Ulcers
Weird upper stomach feeling 6weeks post laparoscopic gallbladder surgery & ercp pancreatitis. 3 months post Csection. Uncomfortable. No pain. NORMAL?
Possibly: Residual symptoms of pancreatitis can include some fullness and discomfort, depending on severity and cause. During the period of recovery, abstinence from alcohol, limiting fatty food intake, may limit the stress on the pancreas. Your doctor should check pancreatic enzymes to make sure they are normalizing. If there are any concerns, additional blood testing and further imaging may be necessary ...Read more
Exact synonym so far as this pathologist is concerned. An ulcer is a lesion on a body surface (outer or inner) in which the epithelium and at least some of the underlying connective tissue has been lost specifically to necrosis (cell death) rather than just mechanical or chemical injury.

Got an lap appendectomy 3 weeks ago.Feeling pain on one of the post op scar (left side),diarrhea, vomiting,no fever.Also having gastric ulcer.Okay ?
Stay hydrated : The pain is normal, as long as the wounds look ok. The diarrhea can be normal, but if you're running a fever or feel ill, see your surgeon and ask to check for C. Dificile colitis. The vomiting/diarrhea could be from a viral infection, or an abscess. You must stay well hydrated, and may need IV fluids. Best to call your surgeon for a more complete eval. Hope this helps! ...Read more
3 months post op. Nissen/laprascopic, robotic, hiatal hernia repair. Recently experiencing painful, debilitating gas& diarrhea. Is this normal?
Not from the surgery: It is very unlikely that these current symptoms are related to your surgery. By far the most common cause of diarrhea is viral infection (enteritis, or gastroenteritis if it involves nausea/vomiting). With any diarrhea, weight loss, dehydration (feeling like you're going to pass out when standing), or fever lasting > 1 day would be cause for concern. Otherwise these things tend to resolve. ...Read more
Many: Most common initially is difficulty swallowing. This is normal and goes away w time. Long term, most pts can not burp, vomit, and have lots if gas/gurgling. This may get better over time (yrs). Don't let this dissuade u from surgery however. Most pts are extremely happy and have great quality of life. Worse the symptoms, better pts feel. ...Read more
Very controllable: The pain usually relates to the incision. These types of incisions are usually treated with IV narcotic pain medications. I typically use a patient controlled analgesia (pca) system which means that the patient has a button that controls when doses are given. There are built in safety mechanisms to make sure too much narcotic is not delivered. ...Read more

3 1/2 weeks post op hysterectomy (Davinci robotic) surgical wound infection, extreme pain surgeon called in antibiotic, nauseos and weak go to ER?
Weight loss: The band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to restrict the amount of food you can consume. It is adjustable depending on the amount of food you can eat and weight loss. The bypass permanently changes the anatomy by re-routing the intestines. The sleeve gastrectomy permanently changes the size of the stomach. All work well for the right people. ...Read more
Bypass & Nissen : Doing a bypass after having a nissen is very difficult and considered revisional surgery. Lots of scar tissue from the nissen and your wrap must be undone. Risks of complications like a leak are much higher. Doesn't mean you shouldn't have a bypass. I have done many of these. You just need to go to an experienced surgeon that does revisional bypass surgery. ...Read more
After Reflux Surgery: Bloating and discomfort from gas buildup and inability to burp are common problems after reflux surgery. I usually keep my patients on a liquid diet for a week after surgery and advance to soft foods as tolerated. This decreases the likelihood of these symptoms. Consult with your surgeon on a dietary regimen. Most often this resolves with time. If it persists, then you may need additional work up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
