stricture problem or just food sensitivity



Recommended Posts

Frustr8, I am sorry to hear that you are still having a hard time of it. My father suffered from ulcers for years and it is hard to deal with.

I did another internet search and came across the following article. Treatment - Stomach ulcer

I think you checked off most of the potential treatments, but there is one that I didn't know if you looked at.

H2-receptor antagonists

Like PPIs, H2-receptor antagonists work by reducing the amount of acid your stomach produces.

Ranitidine is the most widely used H2-receptor antagonist for treating stomach ulcers.

Wow James, you are psychic! I looked through my meds and I have an in-date bottle of Ranitidine from my gastroenterologist. Thanks, it may be a successful tool to add. Doing pretty well with my PICC LINE and TPN. And as long as that profits me also, I am not going request its removal, each lab has been very well. But it is quite an📝 experience thus far!😝🎁

If that does''t work you might try some nonconventional approaches.

I am a believer in the use of essential oils. Put a dab of oil on one wrist and then rub your wrist together or you can put a dab of oil on the soles of your feet. Do this one or two times per day. The oil is absorbed through your skin and into your blood supply within minutes. Some suggested essential oil blends for stomach ulcers are:

Thieves Oil - a mixture of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary.

DiGize - a mixture of Tarragon, Ginger, Peppermint, Juniper, Fennel, Anise, Patchouli and Lemongrass.

Melrose - a mixture of Rosemary, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Clove and Niaouli.

Other single essential oils that might help are: Lemongrass, Copaiba, Lemon, Myrtle, Patchouli, German Chamomile, Myrrh, and Peppermint.

Another approach is to use herbal teas.

In fact, peppermint and chamomile teas are anti-inflammatories that can soothe your ulcer pain and encourage healing. Brew your tea and allow it to cool until just warm—too hot and you'll irritate your ulcer. Stir in some raw honey for its antibacterial qualities as well as for its sweet flavor.

I'm one month post surgery and I was wondering if I have a stricture issue or just sensitive to some food. I can throw up sometimes after eating but only once a day at most. I have acid reflex still and I'm on medication for it but feel like stuff still gets stuck like chicken. Should I just give it more time or be worried?

Update?

I'm doing much better. Doctor said just wait and to keep going but now I'm eating has increased and I'm not sure how much calories I should be eating. I'm eating between 800 to 1200 calories....just depends on my activities.

Somebody asked how can I be cheerful. with ulcers and an stomal stricture? Well why not? I still believe this is a condition I will grow past, I am not a victim but a survivor through all of the twists and turns and maybe my📝 story will give others hope.😛🌈 for their own futures.

Thank you everyone. liquids are fine and I'm supposed to be on soft solid foods but maybe I'll give it another few weeks before eating certain things.

Yes this was me also. I had some major issues with chicken at first. I think its a little early. I didnt really start in on full meats until about 3-4 months. I still cant handle eggs but I think its just because my pouch doesnt like them anymore.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
