Bleeding Esophageal Ulcer and Diet help.. PLEASE

Can anyone suggest the best foods to eat while trying to heal a bleeding esophageal ulcer? I can eat oatmeal..and sometimes even that is painful afterwards.
I am on sucralfate 4 times a day, and prilosec and drinking aloe juice helps greatly..but I am afraid to eat anything as I worry my esophagus will start to spasm...as the spasms literally put me on the floor for an hour..
I know i have to eat..and maybe yogurt or kefir will be good..but thought I would ask if anyone has experimented with other foods and if any have proven less irritating..
thanks very much....

Hi,

I'm sorry for your pain.

I have GERD and have had esophagitis. I also have a hiatal hernia.

Maybe you could try plain white rice or egg noodles with a tiny bit of olive oil on them. For protein I buy protein shakes and can eat small amounts of chicken.

Good luck.

Chantal

With this bleeding ulcer did you get blood in you mouth in the morning or after sleeping???? I do.

I am in bad shape also I was put on protonix 3 days ago. Was taking prilosec it caused my gallbladder to contract less and cause tremendous pain. However, now my blood pressure and pulse rise at night when I am laying down. I wake with my heart beating out of my chest. Dr. prescribe lopressor 50mg. I took a stress test and it was okay, and I've never had high blood pressure either until recently. It's really crazy. Please let me know how your doing and help me if you can.

You speak of spasms I wonder if I do not have them I have terrible pain for hours sometime.

Thanks Dee
