General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello,

* The stomach pain after eating with the previous history of relief by PeptoBismol can be part of chronic gastritis or ulcer issue.

An insight evaluation with upper GI endoscopy is best recommended for the final diagnosis and management guidelines.

For the primary approach to relief:

- avoid spices, non-veg, junk foods, dairy fat
- keep stomach empty by 25 % of satiety value
- intake of proton pump inhibitor as rabeprazole on an empty stomach
- regular walk, exercises as aerobics
- control of blood sugar, cholesterol, body weight
- avoid smoking, alcohol if consuming
- avoid stress, anxiety.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
