Nanners,

When I was having the gastritis issues they never really figured out what was causing them. The only real treatment was clear liquids and anti nausea meds. Eventually, I stopped going to the doctor for it because I knew what they would tell me to do. I found that I really needed/craved salt though. So I was having a small handfull of pretzels or saltines a couple of times a day. I drank chicken boulion like most people drink coffee. I always had a to/go cup with me full of boulion. In fact I still do. I still sometimes get the start of gastritis and I just go to clear and really bland food for a few days and things seem to get better. I did start to NEVER take my meds on an empty stomach, which is something I was not good about before. But I know you've been playing with taking your meds with food, and with out so I don't know if that would be an issue for you.

I personally think that our multiple resections are the cause of the gastritis. I actually think that kinda whats going on right now. I think all the pain meds tore me up and caused the Gastritis. So I guess I am already doing everything I can. (((Heavy sigh, that I know you can relate to). Have you ever tried a little Mylanta or Maalox for the Gastritis, did it help at all?

No I haven't tried it. I have these memories of my Mom taking swigs of the Mylanta bottle when I was a kid. I get shivers just thinking about it. Uhgg! I think if someone said it was the only way to make me better I would do it, but short of that....

Well I can't do it now because its too close to time to take my evening meds, but if I still feel bad tomorrow, I am going to try taking some Maalox with some Lidocaine in it and see if that helps. Don't ask me where I got the Lidocaine (Mexico, Ha!). A doctor gave that to me once and it helped a little. I called an on call nurse already and she said there really isn't much more than can do for me since I have all the typical nausea meds on hand. She did say if I felt like I was getting worse to go to ER so I didn't get dydrated. Don't feel that way now, been sipping gatorade, and 7up all day. Hopefully things will work themselves out tonight. I have a doctor appt tomorrow with my ortho doc to take the stiches out of my knee so will talk with them if I need too. Glad you are doing a little better. Get some rest.
