My doc a few months ago thought I had a stomach ulcer, went on dexilant for a month, helped, but didnt' 100% go away... went to a GI who sent me for a complete abdominal ultrasond...
Aorta - normal
IVC - normal
Pancreas - normal
Liver - Normal
Gallblader - Normal
Kidneys - Normal
also had complete metabolic profiles done twice and came back normal
had Lipase done came back normal
in the past i had a gnawing pain in my stomach that went away with eating, now that is gone but it's still tender when you push right below the middle upper abdomen where the sternum stops... and only at that point
if i bend down i can feel the tenderness or if i streach backwards i also do.
I have a EDG schedules for next week, but what could this be? still an ulcer that hasn't healed? The ulcer was never confirmed, only thought to be by my PCP.. The GI called it stress induced reflux without any real exam... seems like an odd location to be reflux..
