Wow. Is gastritis something that you can treat and get rid of or will you have it forever? Are you feeling any better tonight? Is the vicodin helping? That sucks you had to wait in the ER for 3 1/2 hours, but it is probably good that you went. I've definitely been at the point where I was lying on the bathroom floor in pain from the UC but I can't imagine throwing up at the same time. Hope you feel better soon.

i'm not sure if it is possible to get "rid" of it or not--i was pretty morphined out when they explained it to me. from the limited online research that i have done--it seems like a lot like UC, the mucus membranes get messed up and inflamed. i think there are cartain things that would help ease it, but i don't think it is every really goes away. if someone has a better understanding of this, i would love to hear them..between the D and the vomiting, i meed all the help i can get...
