Question: need information on gastrocopy results


 Kazzy - Tue Aug 16, 2005 4:29 pm

Hi,
Yesterday i got the results of my gastroscopy and am a little confused about the results. I didn't think to ask questions until after i left so thought maybe someone here could help.
The report said that there was inflammation in my esophagus but the biopsy showed no bacteria.
The doctor didn't explain what this meant but told me he wants me to take an anti acid medication (Acimax...containing Omeprazole Magnesium 20.6mg) for a period of 6mths and then he wants to review me again. He said he might do another gastroscopy again and if there's still inflammation he'll want to review me every 6mths after that and possibly perform an opperation.
If you could give any insight into this i would greatly appreciate it.

User avatar Hi Kazzy,
The statement regarding bacteria was most likely referring to the infection H Pylori. If the inflammation if caused by excessive stomach acid, the medication should alleviate this condition.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
