Myself Dr. Sunil and i am here to address surgical problems. After going through your query I would first think about your symptom of episodic burning pain which is there since the past 20 years. I would like to suggest that the cause can be due to Gastro-esophageal reflux disorder (GERD
). This can be confirmed by a simple pH monitoring test. Also I would like to know if you get any relief with antacids or tablets like rantac? Regarding simple measures I want you to have a healthy lifestyle including timely meals and which is bland (non-spicy) with high fiber content. Stop drinking tea or coffee on empty stomach, stop use of tobacco in any form and alcohol if you are used to it. Regarding your CT findings I am thinking of some chronic inflammatory cause for ileocecal thickening like previous history of tuberculosis
. Not to worry about that cause your symptoms are limited to the upper GI tract. Also mild hepatomegaly
and benign cysts in the kidney
are incidental findings which is found in the general population.
Feel free to discuss further in this regard. Hope this discussion helped you. Looking further for your quick healing.
