My Gi Dr. Says I have Barrets, Gastritis Inflamation of the Stomach, Had my Esophagus stretched I am still having trouble swallowing and my throat still hurts. The Dr says I will need to have an upper endoscopy every year to keep tabs on the Barrets as that can turn into cancer sometimes. I also have an appointment with a surgeon on 10/15/08 because I had a scan for my gallbladder and Gi Dr and scan show my gallbladder is not functioning so Surgeon will decide to take out or not.   I really don't know what all this means all I Know is that I still don't feel well I feel Nauseas, and still have lots of stomach and abdomen pain. The Heartburn is under control. Well just wanted to let everyone know my diagnosis. and you have any advise please let me know./PR Glo

Adjust your diet for a while after your endoscopy; lots of liquids, room temperature or warmer. Eat soft foods avoid lettuce, anything that is acidic including fresh fruit. Stay away from juices, colas and any caffeinated drinks. These tips will help your esophagus heal as well as reducing the inflammation from the gastritis; there is also a certain amount of edema from the stretching.

I had my gallbladder removed when I had my Nissen in July, the pain I had was not typical so I can't help you there, but stomach and abdominal pain from the gastritis is nothing to sneeze at; try some gas-x or gaviscon...see if that helps to alleviate some of the pain.

good luck.
Janice

The generalized symptoms of gall bladder disease are: abdominal pain, indigestion, vomiting, nausea, bloating of the abdomen, discomfort and pain when ingesting fatty foods. These symptoms of gall bladder disease are common in patients with chronic cholecystitis. However, apart from gall bladder pain, many patients may have no other symptoms of gall bladder disease.

If you were suffering an acute attack you would know it as the sx are much more severe.

I had my gallbladder removed for chronic sx. eyes That was before scopes were used to perform the surgery.

Good Luck and know I am here for you.

pr glo,

Good morning.  I would think the surgeon would take your gall bladder out as it is not functioning and you have sx of gall bladder disease.

When you go to the appointment on 10/15 do be ready with all your questions.  I usually make a list of the "what I want to know and why" questions.

Take care and keep posting.

Kitt
