Feb 13, 2012 · dyspepsia in Digestive Health

I am so glas you are better too–I am able to eat almost everything again and although I have the left sided pain alot, the frredom from nausea has been such a blessing….the stomach emptying is such an easy and non evasive test so if you start feeling badly again, don’t hesitate to have it—-coco

Hi Dee
I am so much better…but I have to tell you the whole story and why I am better…The nausea was horrible both before and after gallbladder surgery which was recommended because my HIDA scan showed low function…I also have had pain in my left ribs and upper left abdomen for five years but absolutely no digestive issues until July 2011 right before the surgery in August…They did 2 CTscans, a small bowel study, an endoscope(showed mild gastritis, a colonoscopy, an MRI, an ultrasound of my abdomen and numerous blood work—all normal—Then in November I really felt worse than ever with the nausea and even some diarrhea (i also think I caught a stomach virus)—I thought I was dying and the scale kept falling from 118 to 102—I wasn’t ever hungry and had nausea almost all the time —sometimes was better at night…Then in November, they did a stomach emptying test and they foung I had slow stomach emptying (gastroparesis)—I changed GI doctors and my doctor changed mt whole med protocol…He put me on erythromycin, 40 mg. protonix in morning, 150 mg. zantac at night before bed, kept me on Carafate before meals(no longer on it). Then my naturopathic doctor gave me plant based digestive enzymes and probiotics…
I am soooooo much better—I don’t have the nausea anymore and have gained back 14 pounds of the 18 I lost…I have a good appetitie and am so grateful for feeling this much better….I have read about gastroparesis and didn’t think I had it because I never vomited with the nausea—not once—but I have a mild case…Please get that stomach emptying test….They tested me for diabetes and other conditions which can cause gastroparesis and all have been negative (thank God)—so I am hoping the worst is behind me…Let me know if you have any questions—-blessings to you….

I have had nausea almost every day for four months—I had my gallbladder removed 3 months ago but had the nausea before so I am wondering whether I should had had the gallbladder removed—no stones—just low functioning—I take Protonix for some heartburn, Carafate for reflux, a plant based digestive enzymeand xanax to sleep at night…Some days the nausea is better, but it is miserable and scary. I also have pain under my left ribs but have had numerous blood work and every test you can think of—all that shows is some inflammation in my stomach(gastritis) and I am totally frustrated too…

I am three months post gallbladder removal and I still have nausea alot with pain in my left ribs and back. I have had Ct scans, MRI, Hida scan (which showed low function so I had the surgery), small bowel study, endoscope (showed stomach inflammation), colonoscopy, x-rays of lungs, shoulder and ribs,and abdominal ultrasound as well as three sets of blood work—all normal except the endoscopy—yet my digestion is bad everyday. I lost 12 pounds in 4 months. because i can’t eat a lot—I had the diarrhea but don’t have it much anymore …I take 20 mg. protonix, carafate, plant based digestive enzymes and some probiotics….do you have nausea?
