I have GERD. 5 cm hitaus hernia. My last scope doen in July 09, showed a normal stomach and dodudem, but it showed the hernia, and grad A esopgiatus, with only one lesion less than 5mm not entending between muscal flaps.
My question, another doctor wants me to take Indomethacin er 75mg, for a month or so to see if it helps with bad headaches.
I reading this drug stops production the the lining in stomach ect, and can cause bleeding and ulcers.
Do you think I would be alright to take this drug for 1 month. Or would I be a higher risk. I do take 40mg Zegerid, and 40mg pecid at night, so that should help protect my stomach?
Like, I said my stomach was normal in July 09, on scope, and also had a ct done on Dec 09, and normla there too if that means anything
