This is Dr. David
can you tell me what testing has been done?
did you have an upper endoscopy scope and biopsy in your stomach?
and they found bowel tissue in your stomach
this is called intestinal metaplasia
where a biopsy is taken from your stomach and this looks like colon tissue.
this can increase your risks for stomach cancer in the future.
you need to be tested for H Pylori bacterial infection in your stomach and if that is found that needs to be treated.
there is controversy about if surgery should be done to cut out that part of the stomach
here is a very good article.
no just found to day through an ultra sound my stomach has swollen from24 inc to 36 inc in two weeks
i had H Pylori bacterial last year and was treated
I'm glad you got the H Pylori treated.
print out the article above
and bring it to your GI doctors
you will need close follow up
ask if you have intestinal metaplasia in your stomach.
your GI doctors will have to watch that area closely.
