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?
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?
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
Group A strep: It's not quite clear what you mean without the context behind the testing. But it very well could represent group A streptococcal testing. This is common test done when someone has a sore throat to make sure he/she doesn't need antibiotics.

Common bacteria: I assume a culture was performed. This bacteria is very common and can be found on many surfaces including skin. It becomes a problem when it gets passed the barrier of the skin and often causes boils and skin infections. With anitbiotics it can be treated but is quickly becoming resistant to them. Sensitivities are often performed so your provider can chose the drug best suited. ...Read more

Heartbeat 110 and correct sz for 6w4d, levels aren't rising currently 7w1 4879. Dr wants more tests. Worried pg doomed even with u/s results. Is it?
Pregnancy: If the fetus is growing in size according to the us, it's encouraging. If it is not growing, then there is a problem. Hcg should be rising, the level of 4879 is not high and if it is rising in 48 hours significantly (roughly doubling), then it's not encouraging. As far as doomed or not, I cannot tell because there should be dynamic related (repeat us, repeat HCG level). ...Read more
