Re: Doctor said an ulcer or gastritus??
Well, for gastritis I was told to eat no dairy, eat mostly things like mashed potatoes, noodles, white rice and chicken and fish. Not fried. There are ulcers that you can get from pain meds and there is the h. pylori bacteria that causes ulcers. Both really should be checked out with an endoscopy where they scope your stomach. That really is the only way to tell for sure what is going on. It is painless, you are in la-la land. I just had my 5th but do not have results yet from biopsies. No, you probably don't have stomach cancer. Highly unlikely. I would try the diet as I mentioned and see if it helps. The pills will help with acid but it takes a while for the stomach to heal. As far as the "your organs look fine" What did they base this on. Did you have a CT scan? Blood work can not tell how your stomach is unless you have h. pylori bacteria and then it takes a special test. You might also check out gall bladder. See a specialist.
