Diagnosed with Gastritis Today....HELP

Had a Colonoscopy and Endscopy today. Results showed Gastritis and he took a biopsy as well. I go back the 12th to go over the results....Any special things I should eat now until I see him? Those that have it, what do you do to control it? I have the abdominal pain, bloating, gas and occasional nausea.

Re: Diagnosed with Gastritis Today....HELP

Has your doctor tested you for Celiac Disease? My 8 year old son has been having problems with his stomach for years.. he tested positive for antibodies and then in Nov 04 they did an endoscope, it came back negative for celiac but positive for gastritis, they told me to carry tums around and they put him in prevacid. The problems didn't stop but stayed the same so we got a second opinion and in 7 months time there was significant damage to the lower intestine. He was diagnosed with Celiac disease on the 20th of May.

Re: Diagnosed with Gastritis Today....HELP

Your treatment will probably depend on your results, but will probably involve some kind of Acid Reducer, probably best to avoid acidic foods (tomatoes, chocolate), caffiene, fatty foods, spicy foods, smoking, and NSAID's (Ibuprofin, Aspirin) until your doc gives you more details. If you google gastritis you can find a lot of information on the web. Hope this helps.
