I also have pernicious anemia and the B12 issue and the gastrin issue and get yearly biopsies of my stomach. If you ever want to bounce issues or ideas off each other, add me and we can chat! take care and you are nto alone. I feel alone and scared all the time!
I agree with Colleen's, @colleenyoung, comments that your worry is understandable, however, until you get a more definitive answer and/or diagnosis, it might be a good idea to try to relax, plan on doing things that will allow you to rest from thinking about your gastrin levels.
I've had three surgeries for a rare type of cancer in the duodenal bulb, however, my gastrin levels were not all that high. In order to diagnose a serious gastric disorder, such as cancer, or pernicious anemia, many other tests need to be done. If you try to put a lot of emphasis on one test result you can create a lot of unnecessary worry and anxiety.
I would encourage you to consider looking for answers and talking with your medical team, but also give yourself a break from worry. I know that this is easier said than done, but it is important for your overall health to take time to relax.
Physical exercise will help you to put your worries in perspective while you wait for answers and a diagnosis. Are there any forms of physical exercise that you enjoy? I'm thinking of taking walks, practicing yoga or Tai Chi with a YouTube video?
