User :   Sir,I have had bad bloating after eating a small amount of food for the last few days.Also feels like fluid is in my stomach and sounds like it also.I have gallstones and ulcer.What could be causing the bloating and fliud?
Doctor :   Hi,
User :   how are you dr?
Doctor :   Fine, Thank you
User :   any clue as to what my problem may be?
Doctor :   Yes, Both Gall Stones and the acid peptic disease you have can lead to such an complication
User :   would taking prilosec help any?
Doctor :   bloating is due to under digestion which occurs when both bile and the HCL acid are of abnormal quality
Doctor :   yes, but you may be needing a 15 days course with prilosec
User :   ok,also my mother died from stomach cancer and she had similiar symptoms.i have been diagnosed with the heliocopter bacteria
Doctor :   oh, as the acid peptic disease is itself a risk factor for cancer, you need to be careful
Doctor :   and did you get treated for H . Pylori
User :   all i was given was prilosec.I think maybe the dr may have just suspected that bacteria but he did say i had an ulcer.had colonoscopy a few years ago and upper g.i. and said i had a polyp but upper g.i. looked good.that was 5 years ago.
Doctor :   I suggest you to get the diagnosis confirmed by H.pylori antibody test and a Breath Urea test and put on treatment
Doctor :   for the bloating and symptoms of acid peptic get relieved
User :   ok also this came on quite suddenly.So that would be your diagnosis,suggestion?
Doctor :   if its an ulcer already present then it would be wise to rule out the Hpylori by the tests i mentioned
Doctor :   Is there anything i can help you with ?
User :   eating a small amount will be ok?
Doctor :   yes, but for you starving for long is bad, eat small meals but frequent
User :   ok Dr.thank you.
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me , kindly provide your feedback
User :   OK will do
Doctor :   Ok,
Doctor :   bye for now
Doctor :   take care
