Are You Feeling Nauseous? You Might Be Suffering from Gastroparesis!

Are You Feeling Nauseous? You Might Be Suffering from Gastroparesis!

Gastroparesis is a condition when your stomach feels full and heavy even after it has been more than a couple of hours after meal. Generally, it takes maximum 1 & ½ hours for the stomach to feel empty, but if the time taken for it is more, then this is a condition of gastroparesis. It means there is some change in your normal digestion process.

In this circumstance, the food in your stomach doesn’t digest easily and creates a lump. As a result, you have hard time digesting your food. It also means the nerves connected to the stomach are not functioning well. There are a number of reasons for which you can get gastroparesis.

  1. Diabetes is one of the most common causes of making you feel fuller.
  2. Disorders in the nervous system, mainly Parkinson’s disease or cerebral attack can create this problem.
  3. Some medicines, especially antidepressants or anti-inflammatory in nature and certain painkillers can cause this problem.

Gastroparesis shows a number of symptoms:

  1. Occasional vomiting as you feel unnecessarily fuller. When you vomit, it gives out chunks of undigested food
  2. A feeling of nausea
  3. You feel full after you have eaten very little
  4. Bloating and pain in your abdomen
  5. There is alteration in the blood sugar level
  6. You don’t feel like eating due to loss of appetite
  7. You lose considerable weight as you don’t eat much
  8. A possibility of suffering from malnutrition, again due to lack of appetite

How it can be treated?
When you identify the reason for gastroparesis, then treating it becomes easier. If diabetes or nerve disorder is creating the problem, leave it to your doctor to treat. For other causes like lack of appetite, there are some natural ways of treating it.

  1. Have frequent smaller meals. This way you don’t push yourself to eat much and at the same time, the body doesn’t lack nutrition and energy
  2. Avoid fibrous fruits
  3. Avoid high carbohydrate and high fat foods, which takes time to digest
  4. Intake foods which you can swallow, like soups or stew. They are healthy and are also easy to digest

If the problem still persists, consult your doctor who may prescribe some medicines to stimulate the stomach muscles. They generally have no side-effects. There are some medicines which can control your vomiting and nausea. There are some surgical treatments for gastroparesis, where the doctors place a feeding tube in your small intestine. A gastric venting channel is another option, which helps you to get relief from excessive gas formation in your stomach, thus accelerating the process of digestion.

A Post-Surgery Guideline For Cholecystectomy!

A Post-Surgery Guideline For Cholecystectomy!

Gallstones can’t be wished away. There are no medications for it. The only solution is to remove the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ situated beneath the liver, which collects and concentrates the bile produced by the liver. The surgical removal of the gallbladder becomes necessary if one develops stones in the gallbladder which blocks the flow of bile. Gallbladder removal surgery also called Cholecystectomy is a fairly common surgery with very low risks and complications.

Diagnosis
Gallstones are usually diagnosed with the help of an ultrasound, although in the more complex cases, CT scans and X-ray tests are also used. As gallstones can only be managed temporarily with dietary adjustments and can’t be made to go away, Cholescystectomy is a permanent solution.

Post-Surgery-

  1. Temporary or transient nausea may occur for a day or two, as a side effect to the medications used such as anesthesia.
  2. The amount of time that a patient might need to spend in hospital care is dependent on how well they can intake and retain fluids in the body. Urine function is monitored and on that the basis of that, patients are discharged.
  3. Patients can resume normal physical activity, which includes driving and light lifting within almost a week’s time.
  4. If you notice an onset of fever, yellowing of eyes and skin, persistent nausea, then you must contact your surgeon in case it develops into a serious complication.
  5. Follow up with your surgeon within 2-3 weeks of the surgery.

Risks
The risks associated with Cholecystectomy are quite low. Minor complications such as blood clots and infections are usually mitigated by the precision and dexterity of the surgeon.

Recovery
You need to plan ahead for your recovery.

  1. Plan to stay at the hospital: Although you could easily leave the same day as your Cholecystectomy, it is highly advisable to stay in hospital care for at least a day or two. Complications may occur, therefore, it is smarter to deal with them in the hospital where the doctor is always available. Also, if it was so required that the surgeon needed to make a deep incision, you will need to stay longer at the hospital.
  2. Do not drive yourself home: Ask a family member or a close friend to drive you home when you leave the hospital. Its not going to take you more than a week or two to start driving again. It is better to cautious about physical activity just after surgery.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi Doctors, One of my family member has stone in gall bladder and it is detected a month ago. Please suggest if that can be resolved using medicines or operation is necessary. Thanks.

MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Pune
Two person of general population have gall stones. If there are no symptoms (silent stones), no treatment is required unless patient develops pain fever or jaundice. If patient has diabetes and similar ailments surgery is recommended even for silent stones. The symptomatic (nonsilent stone) patients are recommended surgery. Timing and type of surgery depends on the stage of the disease.
