Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) removal
3 Replies RSS
What happens after surgery when you have a GI stromal tumor (GIST) removed from your stomach? I am wondering about the recovery period and how long it takes to recover? I have one 2 inches in my stomach and need surgery. It's not cancer but still should come out. I wonder why? Help, someone talk to me. ## Are you sure its not cancer. Have they done a biopsy. I was told that i had one 7in by 4in. After removal i was put on Gleevac (Oral Chemo Pill) 400 mg for a year and a half. Then found out I had tumors in liver. They changed my meds to 800mg Gleevac. It is supposed to reduce the growth of the tumors.Now, they have me on Sutent because my body got used to the Gleevac. ## Sorry to hear this, will pray for you.This cancer stuff can be serious, have they considered radiation?

Side Effect Mecobalamin 500mcg

I am taking mecobalamin 3 times a day, are there any side effects later? thanks ## Side effects of Mecobalamin (Methylcobalamine) can include any of the following: Gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions including anorexia, nausea, and vomiting. Rashes may also occur sometime. This is definitely the better, non synthetic version of Vitamin B12. So I think if you keep following the dosage instructions on the package you shouldn't experience any (maybe very little) side effects as your body assimilates and uses this nutrient over a long period of time. If you feel like the dose is too high for any reason, just cut back on a dose and work your way up over time. You can view more information about this pill by following the link below... Please post back if you have any other general qu...

Can't relax in any position but on stomach without pain.
1 Reply RSS
I cannot lay in any position besides on my stomach, and I also cannot sit in a reclined position for even a few seconds without a horrible reaction. If I move into any of these positions I get instant gas, bloating, diarrhea, abdominal pain, muscle spasms, pain in my hands and feet, confusion and fatigue. I also have developed many food allergies in the last 4-5 years. I cannot tolerate any amount of sugar, alcohol, or yeasts, and I seem to have constant sinus infections. My holistic doctor believes I have Lyme and co-infections, but I am trying to see if there could be a gastro-intestinal explanation for these strange symptoms that seem to be trigured by resting positions. ## I understand why some people try to use holistic medications and treatments, but you do need to be aware that t...

What is this drug best used for? I was prescribed this while traveling in Mexico. ## This medication contains Simethicone, and Trimebutine, which is most commonly used to treat intestinal conditions, such as IBS, gas, and spasms. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

Looking for details about this tablet. ## I have a bottle from Mexico (Dipera 2 mg) I do not remember what it is for. Thanks, Gloria ## Dipera is for Diarhea. It has always worked great for us. We got a bottle in Mexico in 2007 and it is still working really good, in fact hubby took one today and an hour later, diarhea was gone. I have shared with family and friends and so far, no one has had any problems. Such a tiny little pill but works so good. ## Dipera contains the active ingredient Loperamide, which is used to treat, or prevent diarrhea. In the U.S. it is available under the brand name Imodium, and the generic. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

I had been Rx' motofen in the early 90's and took it for 20 yr.'s or more & when I could no longer find it did not notice withdrawal symptoms. I desperately need it. Have crohnes and have suffered chronic diarrhea sense I was 26, now 75. Its the only medication that works for me & believe me I've tried them all. ## I have no follow-up regarding motofen. Nobody (Dr's) not interested in talking about it or crohnes. I have heard off & on that motofen will be back with no results or any indication of another medication to take its place. I do feel that if it does come back it will be so expensive that we e cannot afford it and the insurance companies will not honor it. So on with the saga. Will appreciate any insight and/or feedback.

Tecta stomach meds
Post a Reply
This is a dangerous drug!! If you take heart meds and prescribed this medication, RUN!! I gained 15 lbs in 3 months. I was retaining water. I was swollen from my toes up to my upper thighs. My feet and toes were so swollen that I could not bend my toes downward. My feet were so sore that it was a struggle to walk! My stomach was bloated as this med stops acid from forming in your stomach that can cause GERD etc. What happens is food sits in your stomach and eventually rots and expelled. I felt so hungry and noticed my nails and hair pretty much stopped growing as the food doesn't get digested and sent throughout the body. My entire body was sore as if I suffered from fibro. My fingers, hands, arms and face were swollen. This was not an allergy. I needed home care as I could barely w...

Is it better in the morning, afternoon of nithg before bed. ## Hi Sal, The dosing instructions for this medication state the following: "Dexilant (Dexlansoprazole) comes as a delayed-release (long-acting) capsule to take by mouth.
