I am 33 years old. I have been diagnosed with extensive intestinal metaplasia in the stomach. Am I gonna live? Can I get a stomach transplant? I have so much pain and am wondering if this is treatable. Please help me doctor. I heard that usually after 6 months of endoscopy cancer can be found. I did endoscopy in Nov 2010 and I am scared.
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!
Intestinal metaplasia is often reversible by a combination of antacids and treating H pylori infection. So first test and see if you have this infection. If you have H pylori infection, consult the doctor and start treatment. Take antioxidant supplements and diet rich in them. Hope this helps. Take care!
I also have doubt that i am suffering from the stomuch cancer. I feel some flash knotes in my stomuch and these irritate me every time. My stomuch feels heavy always. Some time i fell that my stomuch is swelling and feel pain in my stomuch. The knotes are also do pain on pressing them. Please let me know what tests should i get done to check and it would be your grace if you can suggest me a doctor if you know some one. I live in Faridabad Haryana. Awaitin for your reply.
