Hi. 10 weeks ago I underwent reflux surgery and hiatus hernia repair. I am still having symptoms of lpr silent reflux. So I underwent a endoscopy this week and was told I have atrophic gastritis. I am now suffering from stomach back and arm pain. I recently noticed a lot of blood in my stools. I am quite baffled as I have read that this type of gastritis takes years to develops yet I was scoped at the time of my operation and was told everything was normal. Does anyone out there know anything about this type of gastritis. thanks Laura

I thought atrophic gastritis was usually caused by H-Pylori which I'd have thought you'd have been tested for earlier?
Yes I agree, a simple test.
Blood in your stools, and reflux?
I think you need to push your gp! Don't be fobbed off, demand further tests.
Blood in your stools is a flag for a referal that the NHS don't allow unless you have a red flag.
Book an appointment Monday and tell them about your pains. Let us know how you get on.
I don't know if your surgery or the diagnosis causes your current symptoms, but I know they shouldn't be ignored. Chrissy
Oh dear I'm so sorry your going through all this. After surgery you expect a few grumbles but after recovery time you expect your life back not worsening!!
Don't get fobbed off, all the best bud.
