I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. There has also been some evidence that genetic factors play an important role in the etiology of peptic ulcer disease. However, the pattern of inheritance is not simple mendelian and the genetic basis is multifactorial. Risk factors for peptic ulcer include cigarette smoking and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug use. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

Cancers of gi tract are difficult to cure but not impossible to cure. According to the available data after being diagnosed with stomach cancer, 31.5% of people survive five years or more. If that has to be taken as a benchmark his chances are 1 out of 3. I wouldn't be dishearted if I have as much chance of surviving something. You should focus on building a positive momentum around him, to keep him motivated to fight and not lose hope. That helps a lot. He may be given alternative treatment along with his chemo etc to relieve him of their side effects and improve his quality of life. Homoeopathy is ideally of choice. For the hospital I would suggest that you consult with doctors at apollo chennai, that's a good facility near you. Feel free to reach me if you have further queries. Good luck, take care.

This medicine (proton pump inhibitor (ppi).) will not cure problem. It only works by reducing the amount of acid in the stomach. The day you do not take medicine normal acid production will be there n you will have symptoms. Do this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U can eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit (eat whole fruit not juice), a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. Take simple food like rice n dal in dinner. 6. Maintain active life style7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. It contains a lot of fiber which will help reduce tendency for constipation 9. Drink lot of water.10. Everyday preferably sleep on same time 11. Take half cup of cold milk when you feel acidity, it will help. Curd is good for u. 12. If its very severe then elevate your bed raising the head of your bed six to eight inches can help gravity keep gastric acid down in your stomach. This is for long term results but for now to bring your digestive system back on track you need to take medicines. For that I need more details, you can consult me.

Strange Things About Peptic Ulcer!

Strange Things About Peptic Ulcer!
Peptic ulcer often referred to as stomach ulcer, is usually a misunderstood disease. Most people are unaware of the reasons why the ulcer is caused and are also unaware of the early symptoms of the disorder. Here is a look at some of the strange facts about peptic ulcers that you may not know.

Stress does not cause ulcers: The myth that stress causes ulcers is just that- a myth. Ulcers are not caused by stress and tension. However, if you are already affected by an ulcer, stress can alleviate the symptoms and make matter worse. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can result in ulcers. So, if you have already been diagnosed with peptide ulcer, try not to stress too much.
Ulcer pain is not caused due to food: Contrary to popular belief, ulcer pain is not alleviated when you eat something. In fact, the pain increases if your stomach remains empty for a long period of time. So, if you are an ulcer patient, make a point of eating at regular intervals. In fact, the American College of Gastroenterology claims that people with ulcers do not need to follow a bland diet in order to recover from the condition.
Heartburn medication is effective against ulcer: Stomach acid is the common link between heartburn and ulcer, as both of these disorders are caused as a result of excess acid formation in the stomach. This is why physicians often prescribe antacids to ulcer patients.
Untreated ulcers can be problematic: Ulcers are easy to cure and can be completely treated with proper medication and adherence to restrictions. However, you should seek treatment for ulcers as soon as it is diagnosed. If left untreated, this ulcer may go on to cause severe issues for the patient. For instance, untreated ulcers may lead to internal bleeding and scar tissue. The same also impede the digestive process. So, do not leave ulcers untreated and think that they will be repaired automatically over time.
Endoscopy is the best way to diagnose ulcers: Even though X-rays may often reveal ulcers, a normal X-ray cannot detect certain smaller ulcers. Endoscopy is the best way to detect the disorder. In this process, a small tube, containing a light and a camera, is inserted inside the patient s oesophagus. The camera reveals any abnormal growth or infection inside the stomach. If you suspect an ulcer, book an appointment with the doctor as soon as possible.

I'm 56 yrs. On 20sep I have diagnosed advanced stomach cancer. Dr. bharat patodia prescribed me 6cycle chemo (dacotin). I have taken 5 chemo. Now I can feel that the tumor become small & down. Can I hope a long life?

Hello. Its a good sign that your tumor has responded to chemotherapy and has decreased in size. Once you complete your planned chemotherapy, your oncologist will advise a repeat scan to exactly assess how much the tumor has shrunk and where all it is present. If you initially had a localized disease and the tumor is operable now, surgery may be an option. However, the best treatment and life expectancy can be discussed only after reviewing all ýour scans and reports. Ensure a healthy diet. Pls consult me for further opinion or discuss with your treating oncologist. Thanks.

If patient get better result in 1st chemotherapy setting it's really appreciating. Also biopsy report is normal so that my suggestion is you must complete all cycles of chemotherapy with proper advice of your ca specialist. Ayurvedic medicines helps to improve general condition of patient. Example:- hyperacidity, gastritis, nausea, anorexia, skin rashesh, skin irritations, hair loss, hot flushesh, burning of eyes, insomnia, generalised weakness along with bodyache.
