Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
There are 2 issues on endoscopy.
1.Esophageal proble: esophagitis with an inflammatory polyp is suggestive of severe infection. This will predispose to hiatus hernia or even stricture.
The treatment would composie of
1. Mutiple small feeds.
2. Avoidance of spicy foods,caffiene or even alcohol.
3. sleeping with the level of the chest above the body level.
4. Antacids like a combination of sparacid and omeprazole. Prokinetic medications would be required only if there is significant vomiting sensation.
2 Gastritis issue: Fundal gastritis will be taken care of by the above medications.
Proxyvon which you are taking should be avoided.
Survillance endoscopy at periodic intervals (yearly basis)
I hope this answers your querry.

Why i want to aviod taking PROXYVON?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Ketan Vagholkar 30 minutes later
Hi,
thanks for writing in.
Proxyvon is a anti spasmodic. It will give temporary relief of abdominal pain. It is important that the inflammation be controlled in order to relieve the pain. Therefore concomitant use of proxyvon will give a false sense of healing. With antacids and life style modifications the inflammation has to subside thereby giving relief of symptoms.
I hope this answers your doubt regarding proxyvon.

Hi,
Since I am in Mumbai I will not be able to suggest a proper person in Bangalore. However you can visit the sites of Apollo and Manipal hospital in Bangalore. Thereafter check and verify on the net for their credentials and academic accomplishments. The one with the best level of professional accomplishment would be the best choice.

Hi sir, i have told you previously about my problem regarding
GRADE 2 OESOPHAGITIS, LAX XXXXXXX IMFLAMMATORY POLYP(This polyp is present still 10years), FUNDAL GASTRITIS.

I am following the diet as you told and maintaining it. i stopped taking medicine since 10days and started to become free from it by regular diet. From then i am getting brubs after taking food or water. Some vomiting sensation while brushing teeth in the mornings. What is the reason for getting brubs and vomiting sensation?
Plz tell me sir, i am feeling psycologically sick about this issue.

Hi,
thanks for the feedback.
Increased flatulence is due to long term alteration of bacterial flora due to long term consumption of various medications. I would suggest that you start taking cultures in small amounts in the form of yogurts. This will reduce the flatulence. But it may require some time. As long as there is no vomiting you need not worry.
I hope this answers your query.

You should avoid citrus fruits like lemons, oranges , chikoos and sweet limes.

Hi,
I will answer your querries sequentially.
1. Sleeping on the side is preferable more so on the left side.
2. Any green leefy vegetable is acceptable as long as it does not contain hot and spicy masalas. Masalas will aggravate the inflammatory component.
3. Dry fruits are acceptable. there is no specification except for cashews which should be avoided.
4. Yes walking is the best . Upto 45 minutes of walking is ideal for health.
I hope this answers all your doubts.
