I HAVE BEEN HAVING EXESSIVE PHLEM PRODUCTION WHEN I START
THERE SEEMS TO BE NO PHLEM COMING UP FROM THE BRONCHI, NO COUPHING OF ANY KIND FROM THE LUGS.
I SUSPECT THAT THE MUCOUS MEMBRANES IN THE AESOPHOGOUS ARE THE SOURCE, WHICH SPREADS UP TO THE SINOUS MEMBRANES.
I HAVE HAD ROEN-Y BYPASS STOMACH SURGERY ABOUT 22 YEARS AGO, WHEN I NEEDED TO LOOSE ABOUT 120 LB. OF WEIGHT. THE VOLUME OF MY SMALL STOMACH IS STILL ABOUT ONE AND HALF EGG IN SIZE, I AM CAREFULL NOT TO EXEED THIS WHEN EATING, I ALSO CHEW MY FOOD VERY THOROUGHLY, LIKE BABY FOOD BEFORE SWALLOWING.
IS THERE SOME MEDICATION THAT WOULD DESENSITISE THE ASOPHOGUS MUCOUS MEMBRANE. HOPEFULLY SOMETHING IN LIQUID FORM THAT I COULD HAVE A SIP OF BEFORE I STAT EATING???
I will bring up any advice I get from WebMD with my general practitioner, I see him every 3 months for other reasons
Thanks for you assistance!!!!
Probably gastroesophageal reflux disease, follow the advice below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your symptoms seem to be related to gastroesophageal reflux disease.
This is why the symptoms start after you eat food.
I recommend you to use antacids such as Maloox three tablets a day.
I also recommend to use medications to lower the acidity in the stomach such as Omeprazole 20 mg in the morning before breakfast.
I also recommend to use a decongestant to help with the sinus congestion such as Sudafed.
You should drink liquids and avoid food that can trigger the symptoms such as spicy food.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
