Customer:

Customer:

Customer:

lower abdominal pain at times

DR HASAN :

Is this burning pain?

DR HASAN :

Any acid taste in mouth?

Customer:

sometimes yes

DR HASAN :

If you have stomach problem, why they have not done upper GI endoscopy?

Customer:

belly button itching then pain goes to hip and back and you can actually hear gas or stomach it's embarasssing

Customer:

I did said it was ok

DR HASAN :

You mean that they did upper GI endoscopy?

Customer:

had colonoscopy as well ok

DR HASAN :

So have they given any diagnosis?

Customer:

I get afraid to eat

Customer:

im am so upset I feel I cant enjoy my life at all right now

DR HASAN :

have they checked you for H pylori?

Customer:

what is that?

DR HASAN :

yes you are right but don't worry you are going to be ok.

DR HASAN :

H pylori is bacteria that causes stomach problems and bad breath as well.

Customer:

iam a concert violinist and have been unable to perform

Customer:

how do they ck for that?

Customer:

I had my bowels checked for 3 different times no cdif no parasites

Customer:

I take at times Ativan just to calm my stomach down

Customer:

what does it mean to have wall thickening of the transverse colon?

DR HASAN :

This itself doesn't mean anything, only biopsy from that site can tell us that it's normal or has a disease process behind.

Customer:

then it says consider colitis?

DR HASAN :

Yes that is what i am considering.

DR HASAN :

Have they taken biopsy?

Customer:

what route should I take and questions to propose to the dr

DR HASAN :

Thanks a lot for your input. First of all i am really sorry to hear about your problem. I have few suggestions for you.

DR HASAN :

The tests done so far are perfect.

Customer:

when he did endoscopy and said it was ok

DR HASAN :

They should consider irritable bowel syndrome.

Customer:

but a year ago he said I had some metaplasia? but this year it wasn 't there?

DR HASAN :

It's a disease in which there is bloatment, abdominal pain, sometime diarrhea, sometime constipation etc but all tests come out to be normal.

DR HASAN :

So far this is what your case is showing.

Customer:

oh I see May I assume stress is a factor?

DR HASAN :

However they should get your H pylori testing done also.

Customer:

I also had a total thyroidectomy from cancer years ago

Customer:

im writing this down

DR HASAN :

Abdominal pain in not being caused by H pylori but it can be a separate problem causing bad breath.

Customer:

gastritis

DR HASAN :

Yes stress and IBS go side by side.

Customer:

ugh

DR HASAN :

Gastritis alone cannot cause the pain you have.

DR HASAN :

There is no association of these symptoms to your thyroid cancer.

Customer:

I was performing with the new York philharmonic a solo swome months ago and the pain was so bad I stopped I felt I could not breath stomach everything hurt then I threw up pain went to my back I naturally attributed it to kidney stones they ckd and said no said my colon was swollen?

Customer:

what else can cause that kind of pain then?

DR HASAN :

Yes if they felt that your colon was swollen and if they are suspecting colitis then they should treat you with antibiotics.

DR HASAN :

Colitis can cause such pain.

Customer:

ugh

Customer:

I feel like at times my guts are being ripped out

DR HASAN :

yes it's because of the cramps.

Customer:

YES YES

DR HASAN :

You should get yourself treated for your stress and moreover should talk to doctor about this being colitis or IBS.

DR HASAN :

Because first thing you need is a diagnosis and you can move on according to that.

Customer:

SO I see the gastro wed I wrote your suggestions and thank you so much I just ned to know this is something that can be treated and controlled?

Customer:
