Atrophic gastritis

Aug 24, 2014 - 0 comments

Presacral nodule has been stable. Since discovery of it, I've had a 4-fold spike in CEA, iron deficiency anemia, abnormally elevated ferritin post IV iron.  And now I've been suffering gastritis flare-up for the past 4 days. I will see my RE tomorrow for CD13 lining check, but likely this FET cycle will be cancelled given how crappy I've been feeling lately.  I couldn't sleep more than 2-3 hours at a time due to the pain, been running a 100 degree fever for almost 3 days now, anything (solid or liquid) I ate hurts like hell after 30 minutes, bathroom trip >10 BMs per day, ... Never had it this bad. It was such a stupid idea that I d/c'd Prevacid.  Well, the rebound acid refluxes were pretty awful for me when I couldn't take my meds on time due to my work schedule.

Now I'm on Prevacid bid plus Zantac max strength, and hope to weather through this attack sooner.  So far nothing works yet.  I'm still in horrible pain.  I'm due for another ferritin check, but I didn't go coz I knew it would be thru the roof (last two were ~500 >2xUNL).
