Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Which part of your tummy is swollen and sore?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is it the mid upper part of the abdomen?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you on any medications for anything?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you been diagnosed with gastritis previously?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Please let me know.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes gastritis can cause one to have a sore and swollen abdomen.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

What have you been prescribed for your gastritis?

Customer: I'm scared it's something bad . Can it feel swollen if I touch there ?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you have been diagnosed as having gastritis you should be on something like omeprazole or esomeprazole or similar medications for this problem.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should take these for at least a period of eight weeks.

Customer: My sTool sample came back with Bactria
Customer: my doctor said the Bactria has caused the gastritis
Customer: And I can take weeks to go
Customer: I'm just scared it is something like anzyme or ucler
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I understand your concerns.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Even if its a stomach ulcer for instance it should also be cured by omeprazole or anti acid medications that you must have been prescribed.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Its EXTREMELY UNLIKELY to be anything serious like cancer.

Cancer of the stomach is PAINLESS to begin with and pain is something that goes strongly against the diagnosis of cancer.
