Q: 

what are the early symptoms of a gastric ulcer? 1 am concerned that my constant burping may be due to one. How will doctors find out if I have an ulcer?

A: Unlike the skin, the stomach has few nerve cells, and the acid may eat through to a blood vessel and cause bleeding, anaemia and weakness before any pain is felt. Most ulcers cause pain, which may be severe because the acid is attacking a nerve. the pain is often at its worst just before a meal when the acid levels are highest, and food (particularly milk) may relieve the pain. Once a person has the severe pain high up in the abdomen that is characteristic of an ulcer, it is important to have

Q:

A bland diet is usually best until you capture the symptoms under control. Your doctor''s statement concerning a digestive disorder should be vague, as it could be irritable bowel syndrome, a Hiatal Hernia, or copious other issues that are not deadly, but motivation you to have stomach upset. the hernia...


Q: 

what are the current recommendations for surveillance of Barrett''s oesophagus and is there any change with a family history of oesophageal carcinoma?

A: A recent Health Technology Assessment report [1] reports:   “the systematic review concludes that there is insufficient evidence available to assess the clinical effectiveness of surveillance programmes of Barrett’s oesophagus. there are numerous gaps in the evidence, of which the lack of RCT data is the major one.”   “Probabilistic analysis shows that, in most cases, surveillance does more harm and costs more than no surveillance.

Q: 

what are the signs and conditions of a stomach or staple line rupture?

A: Hi, I have a partial staple line disruption and it is not a horror becausemy stomach and pouch were NOT transected so there is no danger. I am goingback in October for a transection. When the stomach and pouch aretransected (cut/separated) after the first few days in the hospital, thereis virtually no way they can disrupt. Scar tissue forms into a seal. Without transection, staples can come "undone" at any time...6mos, 1 yr, 2 yrs, 3 yrs, 4yrs, and even 5 yrs down the road. there are areno

A: Hi! Thanks for the question on the forum. the symptoms you have are very suggestive of GERD or even hiatalhernia wherein a portion of the stomach pushes into the chest cavity. Chronic cough (other than due tosmoking) is often due to GERD. the acid reflux can often cause facial flushing. Acidity, reflux, duodenalulcer can all cause pain in the back, chest and shoulder area. Also you must ask the...


Q: 

Is Pitting Edema a sign of any type of a Cardiac Problem?

A: First, being an RN, you should demonstrate greater knowledge than you do. At any rate, you really do need to see a doctor because the conditions that cause pitting edema are vary serious-four that come to mind, allergies, cardiac(heart) problems(you identified), hepatic(liver) damage, and respiratory(lung) problems. Have your heart and liver enzymes, and blood gases tested. these tests may run you around $200.00-less if have connections and get them at cost. pitting edema is a dangerous sign of congested heart failure. fluid backs up into the plural spaces and distal areas of

Q: 

Do gastrointestinal cancer symptoms usually show up gradually, or quickly?

A: Very gradually. Really steadily increasing in a very slow pace. No cure as of yet, but one does not go too soon. I mean, if one does not undergo surgery. Better not if one wants to live longer. It goes thus: If one is to be left alone with the cancerous condition, he or she can live even for a few years. Once operated upon, death will visit in about two or three months. And the chance of cure through surgery is less than one percent. Hi Ecter, the tumor registrar is right - intermittent until they get too big. It depends on the type of cancer and where it is. Stomach and esophagus
