Today I had 4 biopsies taken from the antrum and stomach body. Gastritis was found. I have been doing some reading, and cannot figure out if this is serious or not. Is Gastritis the end result of a number of different diseases? Does gastritis ever go away?
I take 325mg aspirin every day for blood thinning for heart issues and have not specifically been tested for H Pylori. I thought that might show up in biopsy if it is an issue. I guess I am most worried about gastric cancer- Having trouble eating, no appetite, immensely bloated stomach, pain in lump in mid stomach and major bowel issues. I guess all of this is speculation. I also might have diabetic gastroparesis as well. I am just sick of being sick and sleeping all day and all night. Thanks for your interest. This is helpful.
The gastritis could be from taking the asprin. I would talk to your doctor about this. Your symptoms do sound like gastroparesis and that is more likely if you are diabetic. You should talk to your doctor about a gastric emptying scan.
