Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome to Health Care Magic.

Thanks for writing.

I am Dr.Muhammad Ahmad. I have read your question completely, i understand your concern and will try to help you in best way possible.

Here are a few things you can do.
First a heart pain has to be ruled out this is important.. if that is a stomach ache for sure then...

1) Avoid fizzy drinks alcohol and pain killer for today you can take tylenol once but no cafeinated stuff and no other pain killer.
2) if you dont have BP issues mix 1 table spoon baking soda in water and drink slowly.
3) Best thing you can do is to get syrup gaviscon from a nearby Pharmacy and use 3...4 table spoons of it. This is over the counter available and best remedy which you can do.
4) After that you will have to get a checkup by a doctor who may prescribe you PPI and prokinetics but till then I would suggest you to try what i mentioned above.
5) Caffeine chocolate.. coffee tea..fizzy drinks pain killers and cigarette is to be strictly avoided.
6) Don't sit or lie flat..keep walking around this helps keeping the motility better.

Don't panic things would settle down.




I hope this answered your question, a
if you have more please feel free to ask.

Regrads.

I had gastric bypass surgery on June 11th. Last week I went back to work and 1 of he incisions strarted to bother me. It is red at the incision and the area surrounding it. The skin is also hot and it s painful. I called the dr and they said it was normal. I do not have a fever or stomach pain and the incision is closed so there is no puss or seepage of any kind. The nurse told me ice it and take Tylenol and eventually it would be ok. She said it was scar tissue healing and due to my increased activity it was very irratated. What do you think?

Hello I had abdominoplasty three weeks ago.I had a marcane pain buster after surgery for a few days and never experienced much p ain at all since then. I only took an occasional hydrocodone , motrin and tylenol . Everything was great and then a week ago I started feeling sick. My urine got dark and my skin began to itch and my urine was dark. It turns out my liver enzymes and esophinosil levels are up and I might have cholestasis hepatitis. I am to f/u with my gastroenterologist tomorrow. I have a headache now. No fever or pain anywhere. The ct showed nothing but the Gi doctor on call says I still need a sono and it could be from anesthesia. They took me off flecanide which I take for occasional paroxismal a fib. I am wondering what the best diet for this is as I am not hungry and what the recovery time is for this. Thank you very much
