Hi I would like to know if there is a permanent cure for mild chronic inactive gastritis in the antrum of my stomach. Would this heal completely?
Permanent cure?: Having a condition well-managed or resolved would be more realistic. In the case of "mild chronic inactive gastritis" you do not have active irritation of the stomach lining, but only signs that you did have mild chronic gastritis. The stomach lining should continue to heal unless you have H.pylori (likely checked with gastric biopsy), but this can be treated if found. Acid blockers also help. ...Read more
I had an endoscopy which found gastritis in the stomach antrum. I have been feeling nauseous quite often. Is this from the gastritis or functional?
I just had an endoscopy and was told I had inflammation in the stomach and a nodules in the antrum? Should I be worried. Are most nodules there canc
Not all nodules a CA:
I would suggest to ask your physician for clarification about the nodule.
Usually a biopsy (a piece is taken out of any suspicious spot for lab assessment) is taken during the procedure, and that would give you the definite answer of the cause of the nodule.
Hope you get well soon ...Read more

Does moderate antrum gastritis interfere with food digestion and cause gases and bloating in the stomach?
Possible...: Gastric delay to due inflammation? Belching is caused by release of swallowed gas after distension of the stomach with food. Magenblase syndrome is postprandial epigastric fullness & bloating, relieved by belching. Aerophagia (accumulation of gas due to air swallowing) is common with anxiety, hypersalivation from gum chewing, smoking, drinking, oral irritation. In some, belching can become habitual. ...Read more

I got a egd today and waiting on the biopsy results. What does congestion in the stomach body and antrum compatible with gastritis? & normal mucosa?
Patchy inflammation: Congestion is synonymous with hyperemia, which literally means redness.

Biopsies will tell more, and may help point to cause of said inflammation (e.g. H.Pylori, nsaid, etc.). ...Read more

I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount (Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?
Endoscopy report: Erythema is of little significance without a biopsy of the area to correlate, large food residue could mean you have gastroparesis, or slow stomach emptying that might benefit from medication (or small frequent meals), and I'm glad that the antrum was biopsied. That's a place where you are likely to find H pylori if they are present. ...Read more
Had an endoscopy, diagnosed with erythema in antrum fundus and bile reflux can these make a feeling of fullness in chest and stomach after meals?
Could a moderate sever non-erosive gastritis patch found in the antrum of stomach be caused by zollinger ellison syndrome? I've read it's very rare. Neg. For h. pylori, no nsaid use. Report also said reactive gastropathy on egd.
Antritis: The stomach makes acid. Acid digests some foods especially proteins. It also produces a protective layer of mucous. If that mucous layer is decreased it exposes the lining of the stomach to those acids. Things that decrease that mucous layer are stress, aspirin, motrin, advil (ibuprofen) and other like drugs. With exposure to those acids the lining of the stomach begins erode causing injury to the lining. ...Read more
Maybe not acid...: Related. Could be irritants such as alcohol, reflux of bile into stomach, effects of aspirin, other. Talk to md about other causes and possible rx, including med change, use of other rx, e.g. Sucralfate, which works by a different mechanism than Prilosec and other ppi meds. ...Read more
Endoscopy results today - mild erythematous/exudative with no bleeding in antrum. What does this mean??
Endoscopy results: endoscopy reports are difficult to interpret without seeing the results of the clinical setting and any biopsy results or photographs taken. Having said that, the description you give suggests that there was a mild amount of redness and mucus in the last portion of the stomach. The significance of this is unclear, and can best be determined by talking to your endoscopist. Good luck. ...Read more
