Ulcer or erosion?

Recommended Posts

I was banded in 07'. Lost fifty pounds but have gained it back and more over the 10 years.

I was taking prescription strength ibuprofen for nerve pain from a spinal cord injury. I stopped taking it about a month ago, assuming that's what was making my stomach burn and hurt.

I have since removed caffeine, fried food, I'm on a bland diet. Just drinking Water now other than one cup of coffee in the am.

The pain is across the top section of my stomach/along my ribs. It's pressure and sharp pain. Some burning like an ulcer would feel. It hurts to stands up straight when I have the pressure. It was only in the evening and worse when I drank whole milk or certain foods.

I've eliminate everything I can think of for food. If I didn't get hungry, way small meals it was pretty good.

Over there last few days, it seems the pain happens almost constantly. Nothing makes it better, it hurts if I eat, or if I don't.

I'm taking Probiotics, and one week in with Nexeum.

I have an appointment with my gastric doctor April 11th. My question is, do you think it's okay to wait for the appointment? I'm out of state until then, and will have to pay out of pocket to go to Dr here. If I'm not in danger, I'd like to wait. But, I don't want to cause damage I can't fix?

Probably can wait but you may stay miserable until you see him.FYI, I have a little baby ulcer which I have named Hector, I have no h.pylori so Hector came from too much ibuprofen chewing on my stomach lining. Gives me the same sort of pain, he gets especially peeved from coffee and some foods. And the little stinker enjoys reminding me he 's down there. I have to take Dexilant to keep him napping.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
