I had my gallbladder removed last Dec.2013. I am diagnosis with erosive gastritis (no H.Pylori), duodentis, through endoscopy done in Feb. 2014, and IBS -D.
My diarrhea is less but still flares up if I think I eat fatty food. I try to eat right and take probiotics now.
I very sensitive with my stomach and have at times right side pain going to my armpit. Taking protonix. Not sure if it helping or making things worse. I do not have normal days anymore. There has been time the past week I felt fatigue.
Recent PCP visit checked my heart pulse and blood pressure normal and he stated what I feel is from gastritis. I did take couple months ago upper abdominal sonogram/stool test from my gastro and it looked normal. My PCP wanted me to take Pepcid AC which I find to make me congested and Carafate which I didn't get yet. Very expensive. Is medication beneficial for gastritis?
I also recently took blood test which all is good, but my bilirubin is still high. 2.2 H Normal range 0.2-1.2 mg/dl.
What concern should I take regarding bilirubin being still high and my other alignments? I tried to control my stress and worries. Is this psychological what my body is going through? Would gluten play a role with my digestive issues?
Appreciate any feedback and/or similar experiences and suggestions.
