I really need some help in this area as to just what are stomach toxins are and are these toxins related to Chrons disease or is this caused from the intestional track? Just what can cause food rejection and vomiting of foods related to a hitial hernia repair and a 270 degree stomach wrap done on 9/01/10. One would think that by now, the healing process from this operation would be done. This condition is getting worse instead of better and a doctor who has not given her written statement of what she saw in her last upper endoscopy, really has me quite upset - just color pictures of her exam and if i am to know as to what they mean. Need some help and understanding in this matter. thanks bob

As far as I can figure from googling...Stomach toxins are anything that is harmful to your stomach, (ie. virus, H. pylora, etc.)

I don't know anything about Crohn's except what I can find on the net. Why don't you go over to the crohn's forum and ask them about this?

Thanks joy - I have done as you suggested by going into the Crohns forum and i did get a lot of information about it. The only problem i have, is not having my medical reports from my last doctor in writing as to where i might know as to what is wrong inside of me. Take care bob

GreyGhost,

about half of the world’s population is infected with H. pylori, although most of them don’t know it (most infected people have no obvious symptoms). For a percentage of the infected, however, the bacterium packs a nasty punch. H. pylori is responsible for most human cases of gastric and duodenal ulcers, and long-term infection is a significant risk factor for stomach cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death worldwide.
 
Shiga toxin-producing Escherchia coli (STEC) can cause severe enteric infections.
 
You may want to look at the CDC site for futher info.
 
Good Luck,

Hello Kitt In a blood test, i was told that i had this H.pylori. How does one get rid of rotten disease or can they? Maybe this is why they wanted to remove all of my stomach in 2007 in Omaha,NE at Creighten hospital and i would not let them do so. Thanks for the information bob

H. Pylori is treated by long-term antibiotics and PPIs.

Hello Joy: I am not on any antibiotics as of this date. I am taking protonix 40mg twice per day and this is not helping me at all. I still need answers to my problems, but no luck at all in getting information i need from my last doctor on her upper endoscopy report - just pictures - nothing written. Until then, i am at a loss as to what to do and just living day to day with my problems. Take care Joy and thanks bob
