Have been suffering from acid reflux and burning in my stomach since having my son. Ultrasound showed gallstones and egd showed gastritis. Had the egd Thursday...how long until biopsy results come back? Is it possible my gallbladder problems are causing my gastritis? I also have anxiety and am on day 16 of prozac. Nothing seems to be helping my gastritis symptoms. All help would be appreciated!!

No, i am not taking any other meds with the prozac because i used to take it for my anxiety and depression a few years ago. And i have been having problems before i started the prozac. I have no idea if IM h Pylori positive yet, and to be honest i kinda hope i am so i can get rid of this. But i too have tons of burping, along with nausea, burning stomach, bad taste in mouth, and loss of appetite. I have a general ill feeling, like i constantly have the stomach bug but without the vomiting or diarrhea. I also have dull pain under my right rib, along with gurgling in that area. It seemed to have gotten worse after having my son. And i was treated with penicillian during labor being gbs positive. :/
My gastritis symptoms are belching, burning/gnawing stomach, acidy feeling stomach, always feeling like I've eaten big meals even on an empty stomach, and lots of heartburn. And my doctor wasn't wanting to take it out yet, unless i fail to feel better with meds....which i am calling them tomorrow and they're going to schedule a hiss scan to see how my gallbladder is doing with the stones.
I assume you mean a HIDA scan which tests for gallbladder function. And meds will not get rid of gallstones. You should have it out before a stone gets lodged in the bile duct and you have to have emergency surgery. The gastritis may or may not continue afterwards but the only way to get rid of the stones and the pain is removal.
Yeah, hida scan...stupid phone. And the prilosec i am taking is supposed to help my gastritis but I've still been having symptoms. I had the egd done Thursday(3 days ago)....how long until biopsy results for h Pylori come back? Should i call the doctors office tomorrow?
