Hi. I would like to know if botox injections in the pylorus for gastroparesis and chronic constipation, making constipation worse?

I got botox to treat my gastroparesis my doc said my pylorus did not look abnormal like it dose with gastroparesis patients what does that mean?

Difficult to tell: The best person to ask would be the endoscopist. They saw the duodenum and perhaps obtained a biopsy and you should go back and discuss this at length and get their recommendations. ...Read more

Ultrasound says my 4 month daughter's pylorus is 6.5mm thick. I introduced solids, some help but she still vomits. I surgery needed? She isn't dehydrated

Ultrasound says my 4 month daughter's pylorus is 6.5mm thick. I introduced solids, some help but she still vomits. I surgery needed? She isn't dehydrated

Probably not: The most common reason for vomiting is reflux, which usually resolves somewhere between 4 and 6 months. I believe you are asking about pyloric stenosis, which usually presents much sooner than 4 mo. There are two readings on u/s that are important: length and thickness. Also the study should be read by someone who reads pediatric ultrasounds. ...Read more

Is there any treatment for a double pylorus besides pump inhibitors like Prilosec and prevacid (lansoprazole). Need answers?

Is there any treatment for a double pylorus besides pump inhibitors like Prilosec and prevacid (lansoprazole). Need answers?

Usually no therapy: Most commonly a double pylorus is due to prior ulcer disease. If there is ongoing ulcer disease than a proton pump inhibitor (eg Prilosec or prevacid) is the standard of care. If you have ulcer disease, a test for helicobacter pylori should be done. If there is no ulcer than no therapy for the double pylorus is required. ...Read more

Diagnosed marked antral gastritis & pylorus gastric erosion w-tiny ulcers I can eat small amount, else I have nausea Do I have to force myself to eat?

Special circumstance: For someone in your condition, it is best to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day to ensure you receive nutrition throughout the day. This will allow you to receive the nutrients throughout the day without feeling nauseated or heavy. This will prevent the heartburn if you eat something every 3-4 hours throughout the day until the ulcers heal.

Why does my stomach hurt after egd with dilation of the pylorus and I am still nauseated - usually lasts 4 - 5 weeks after procedure.

Pyloric Dilation: The dilation procedure basically "reams out" fibrotic tissue and it takes several weeks for this to heal, just like any deep scrape you might have ever had in your skin. There are meds you can take to relieve the nausea and discomfort, so follow up with your gastroenterologist and discuss things you can do to relieve the suffering. ...Read more

Why my throat pain severly and what I should do.? I have pylorus ulcer what to do. I used to take severe tobacco doma

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. ...Read more

What are the chances of getting military waiver (s)?

Possible MOS reclass: Are you asking about a waiver to get in, or to stay in? Regs to get in are of course more stringent than regs to stay in. After you've gone through Basic, AIT, and spent time serving, the military will rightly try to keep you, since you have valuable training & experience. It all boils down to safety. You've got to pass the PFT & perform basic soldiering duties in an austere environment to stay in ...Read more

Is there any contraindicatios /ri s k s w I t h b 12 shots?

Risk of B12 shots: No. Except it is an injection and may cause some pain. Vitamin b 12 is a water soluble vitamin, which means if you have enough in your body the excess will pass in the urine.It can also be given in oral form, but absorption is unpredictable, and nasal spray which is comparable to shots but costs more. There is no contradiction except I don't recommend in children and young adults as they don't need it. ...Read more
