have been through nissen, meds, still suffering?!!!
My stomach problems started 5 years ago, I was diagnosed with GERD & LPR. I was on 40mg of nexium daily but still suffering, so had nissen done April 2010. I was ok for a while and then problems started again, and now they are really bad. Unfortunately the doctors weren't taking me seriously enough, since they did an MRI and an endoscoppy last Feb which showed nothing. But the stomach burning and stabbing pains carried on, and now I have LPR symptoms(weakness of vocal cord, excess phlegm), on top of the stomach issues. To cut the long story short they have now diagnosed me with slow stomach emptying, and the endoscopy that I had done on Tuesday showed gastritis and duodenitis.(at list now they now, I wasn't imagining the pain!!!)
I haven't seen the GI since he did the endoscopy on Tuesday, I saw the notes though that he had given the nurse, apparently biopsies were taken.
Now I am scared, and really worried. I am a 42year old woman with 2 small children, and scared what if something really bad is wrong? I feel like my body is attacking itself. Has anyone else had the same experience, that despite of meds and nissen, still suffering. I don't really think nexium is doing anything for me?!! The only thing I can think of is could I have bile reflux?but bile has never been present in my endoscpies.
