Pancreatitis blood gases

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis blood gases


Avatar n tn It could be due to gallbladder disease or pancreatitis. Other possible causes of include bowel obstruction, inflammation of the stomach and small intestines from an unrelated source as well as an unrelated intestinal infection. You will need to consult your treating doctor, who may run blood and urine tests and may sometimes ask for an ultra sonography to detect the cause for the vomiting. . Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I have been to the Doctor and he did an endoscopy, several blood tests, a gastric emptying test,(all of them have come back normal) and a ultrasound of my gallbladder. They found a gallstone, and I have had my gallbladder removed. He thought maybe that was my problem, but so far I still have the same symptoms. I am currently taking 10mg Amitriptyline (for about a week,)and symptoms are still there. I also tried Dicyclomine and that did nothing. I will visit the Doc.
Avatar n tn That was done and the doctor called me that evening, (last Thursday) and informed me that I have a HIGH RED BLOOD CELL COUNT. Since then, I went in for another blood draw in my wrist to check for blood gases. (Oxygen level and such). The doctor wants me to go in for another test tomorrow, something to do with hemoglobin...not sure what. Then, the doctor also wants me to go in this weekend for a CT scan.

1778046 tn?1318440702 Very tense feelings in the area that is prominent when seated and the anus feels completely closed off (cant expel gas for up to 24 hours despite being extremely bloated and being able to feel the gases travelling in my bowels). When gas does come out it is very little and I must strain a lot to get it out. (I have pictures of my feces, unfortunately, lol, but I wont post them publically. I don't want to gross anyone out randomly).
Avatar n tn The doctor done a pap smear and female examination and blood test and told me that my white blood count was high. And told me that he thought I had a bacterial infection or that my period was trying to start and when it did i was going "to flood", that was his exact words. And i asked him if he could do an ultra sound or catscan and he told me that there was no need to and it would take too long and there was nothing wrong with me, then sent me home with anibiotics.
Avatar n tn I am 40 yrs old, in okay shape, male, maybe 10 lbs at the most over weight. I did have blood work done for my heart for life insurance 2-3 months ago, and they found no problems at all with the tests. I have had these symptoms since last Sat, although the food sticking occasionally has happened off and on over the years. I never thought much about it. Please Help. I am having anxiety over this. Thank you!
Avatar n tn Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS); inflammatory bowel disease; AIDS/HIV; malabsorptive syndromes; pancreatitis; lactose intolerance; and numerous medications including some antiviral medications, antibiotics, and cholesterol lowering medications; and even protein supplements. Most of these conditions are treatable. The unpleasant odor of flatulence comes from bacteria in the large intestine that release small amounts of gases that contain hydrogen sulfide and methane.
Avatar n tn Oh, and my blood pressure is dropping dramatically with these episodes. Very strange. Can anyone comment more on this thread?

4520139 tn?1355852769 Recommended basic blood panel ($90), but not the full blood panel unless indicated. Vet was very patient, willing to answer questions. Charged me for an annual exam in order to provide the consultation, but I don't think he did the part of the exam in which they manually feel the cat's abdominal area and glands throughout the body. Provided a detailed estimate of the costs.
Avatar n tn wide with blood. She removed tube but left my ovaries in tact. I developed blood inbetween the tissue and the outer skin. They had to open up an opening between the R + L side of the stitches as to drain the blood, there was over 300mls. They used a catheter to drain with sterile water. I've been home for a week now. A nurse has to come in once a day to errigate until the fluid comes out clear. I'm still getting a lot of cramping (gases from the surgery).
Avatar n tn There would definitely be more of a risk with an arterial line....or a test for arterial blood gases, where blood would have to be drawn from an artery (usually in the wrist). If indeed there was a nerve injury as a result of an IV insertion, it should gradually improve. Certainly, seeing your doc if symptoms are severe, or are interfering with your daily life...would be recommended.
Avatar n tn After listening to my symptoms, he told me he thought it was biliary colic--related to gallstones. He ordered some blood tests and an ultrasound of the gallbladder, liver and pancreas. My liver enzymes went up after an attack and my ultrasound showed gallstones. I am scheduled to have a laprascopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) tomorrow. I was looking through anything on the internet gallbladder-related because I'm a little nervous.
Avatar n tn I left my job and went to different doctors, they all hear to me, they don't consider it serious, they do only some routine tests like blood test and ultra scan. They will find nothing negative in the tests and come to a conclusion that it is infection caused by bacteria and give some antibiotics. But none of them helped me. Even in colonoscopy, nothing negative showed up. I took activated charcoal pills too, it did not help. I have used flat-d underwear, it did not stop my foul smell.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately I also have pancreatitis and woke up to a horrid attack. Not a great start to the simple procedure. I then started with pain in my throat and chest and stomach. I could hardly drink water and eating was like rocks going down my throat. It still feels as if I have a lot of spasms starting from when I try to swallow all the way down to my stomach. Of course the Dr. says don't worry about it but it hurts like hell. I feel like all's I can do is whine and complain.
Avatar n tn Do you have high or low blood pressure? I have to eat more salt because I have very low blood pressure. Well water could be another reason as it can contain iron. By using a water softener which used salt to soften the water could help. I think your answer could very well be in your water even if you don't have a well. Buy a kit at the store to test your water. Your pipes could be a problem too if you don't have a well. Anyway I hope you get your answer.
Avatar n tn Basically, though, your gastrointestinal upset +/- the valsalva pushing (holding one's breath and bearing down) are both adequate to stimulate the vagus nerve which causes an immediate drop in blood pressure and heart rate. The result? A drop in blood supply everywhere - including the brain - which causes a sudden loss of consciousness. Once our head is lower down (eg. on the bathroom floor!) it's easier for blood to get there thanks to gravity, and we regain consciousness.
