I had my gallbladder out at the end of August. It took weeks on end for my stomach to calm down. I had very bad gastritis. But it finally settled, although I was only able to eat low fat foods.
A few months passed by and I felt confident that my stomach had healed and that I could try higher fat foods.
I didn't go crazy but I did have more than I had in a long while. French fries, butter on my potato's, hamburger.
The first few days, it was fine and no doubt I should have stopped and given my stomach a chance to get used to things but I again thought I was okay and kept having a bit more fat.
The symptoms of gastritis slowly started up again...and with a vengeance!
Burning in my stomach and esophagus where it was painful, bloating, belching, stomach aches and cramps, very bad heartburn.
I tried what I used before, Ranitidine, Gavescon, Pepto bismal, Tylenol...but none of it is working! 😦
It;s been over 7 days now os constant burning and pain and it doesn't seem to subside.
The pain has even woke me in my sleep.
I am freaked out that this could be cancer or the start of it.
The reason why, is because it's constant and none of my symptoms settle down, or barely..they definitely don't go away and none of the meds I used in the past that worked...are not working!!!
As I write this I can feel burning coming up from my stomach to my esophagus and it's painful!
What do to? All doctors offices closed for holidays.
Could this be cancer? Have any of you had gastritis this bad? What advice can you give me?
Thank you for anyone that takes the time to help.
