Protonix upper gi bleed

Common Questions and Answers about Protonix upper gi bleed

protonix

Can protonix be used for dogs who are gi bleeding? My 10y.o. min. poodle has been upper and lower bleeding for 2 days. She's on pepcid BID.
Dark stools associated with epigastric discomfort is suspicious for a GI bleed. Causes of this can be an ulcer, mass, or inflammation of the esophagus or stomach. Acid reflux can also cause the discomfort, but is typically not associated with dark stools. Being only 18 years old, a mass such as cancer is much less likely. I would suggest a study to evaluate for the presence of an ulcer. An upper GI series or upper endoscopy would be a good place to start.
I don't have GERD symptoms and wouldn't have known I had this hernia except that I had a GI bleed last summer from aspirin and pain med use. I am female, age 60, have allergies to sulfa & penicillin, have minor elevated BP & cholesterol, for which I am taking prescription meds for. I also am having a colonscopsy this week, to rule out any problems in that area. Would appreciate some feedback to alleviate my concerns. Thank you.
He received a prescription for Protonix 40mg daily and was sent home. The next day, the severe pain attack came again, he again was told to go to the ER and did. The same things happened, only no new RX for a PPI. Our PCP sent him to a GI doc for upper scope and colonoscopy - both came back as normal findings and negative for H. pylori. He was increased on the Protonix to 40mg BID and told that it was GERD.
I am still on Protonix for the hernia although they were never able to confirm the hernia with an upper GI x-ray (they say that is common if the hernia is small... also I am short so my torso is short) and they will not do an endoscopy because of fear that I could bleed to death if something were to go wrong due to being on the blood thinners. I have tried all of the suggestions...
I have a gnawing sensation that radiates from my RUQ to my RLQ and sometimes to my back. The surgeon that I saw is sending me for an upper GI endoscopy to look for a Helicobacter pylori infection and an isotope study to rule out Gastroparesis. Could Biliary dyskinesia , a Helicobacter pylori infection or Gastroparesis casue me to gain weight? I also have hypothyroidism and my last TSH was 1.27.
They are right, once the liver fails then the heart fails. You mentioned that the doctor said something about an upper GI bleed, when the var ices (veins in throat/esophagus) burst it can be very sudden and it can cause death. A member on here had it happen and she was lucky enough to get emergency care to save her life, not everyone is so lucky. I am so sorry for your loss. You were such a good child to sleep next to her in the hospital.
This can include gastroparesis, esophageal dysmotility, GERD, an ulcer, or inflammation of the upper digestive tract. An upper endoscopy or upper GI series can evaluate for many of these disorders. If negative, an abdominal ultrasound can be considered to look at the gallbladder. More specialized testing can be considered if the tests continue to be non-revealing.
I HAD A ULTRA SOUND,AN UPPER GI,A CAT SCAN,ALL CAME BACK SHOWING NO PROBLEM.IN MAY OF 1999,AFTER MANY OF THESE ATTACKS,I REQUESTED TO SEE A SURGEON.AFTER SEVERAL MORE TESTS,HE REMOVED MY GALLBLADDER .HE SAID IT WAS DISEASED AND THAT I HAD SLUDGE IN IT.I HAD NO MORE PROBLEMS FOR APPROX 5 MONTHS.THEN I STARTED HAVING THE SAME PAIN AGAIN.ALL DURING THIS TIME I WAS DRINKING ORANGE JUICE ON A DAILY BASIS.

Morning, Tumbleweed: I've actually been seeing a rheumy and my GI. My GI is the one I've gone to the last couple trips and hopefully his nurse will call this morning with word of doing the biopsy. Sarad: I haven't experienced any nausea. I've basically had the painful joints that move around, extreme fatigue 3 different days, and I think some muscle fatigue frequently, oh, and I think tenderness over the liver, plus I have costochondoritis (ribs are always sore), but I've had that forever.
My doctor is thinking it could be a GI infection. I wonder if anyone else had a GI work up done. There are so many posts of people who have the issue and no I One who has found a solution. I am the only one who smells it, which I think is good, except I am so grossed out by the smell I can't take it anymore. HELP!!!!!
Essential tremor is most likely to affect your arms and hands, but it can affect your face and upper body, and sometimes your voice. It will generally get worse when you try to do simple tasks such as drinking a glass of water, tying your shoelaces, or writing. Essential tremor is usually not present when you are resting or moving. Essential tremor affects about 1 in 250 people and affects men and women equally.
the inhaler and singular definitely helped with the tightness i was feeling in my lower neck and upper chest, but not with the breathing! and some days its better than others. and i actually do feel a little better after i do some mild cardio...but who wants to work out when they cant breathe???!!!! But it honestly is better on days i work out than on days i dont. oh, also a did experience a bit of heartburn...
Wow, I feel like Im looking in a mirror. I had upper and lower jaw surgery 3 years ago and my health has never been the same. I was given 4 plates and screws in the mandible and maxilla and got the same story about the bioavailability of titanium, but I question it. I have done some moderate research over the last few months and I found one excellent study about a very small percentage of patients having significant health systems since receiving Ti implants.
