Better consult a gastroenterologist. I usually have an upset stomach at masakit ang sikmura ko pero 5 times and pain sa likod kung saan tumatagos yung pain na may kasamang heat burn. Madalas akong gumising sa gitna ng gabi just to eat kasi my stomach is painful and feeling ko gutom na gutom ako. I thought at first that the pain is coming from my backbone not until last Nov 2005 when I underwent a Colonoscopy operation. I was diagnose by Dra. Mary Elizabeth Flores of The Medical City to have a heital hernia and GERD. May maliit na sugat ako (actually gasgas look lang kasi nakita ko sa monitor) sa esophagus at naiirita sya everytime na nasasagi sya ng stomach acid. I was prescribed to take 20mg of Omepron. Omepron is an acid pump inhibitor. Sometimes I take Nexium pag talagang masakit na at hindi ko na matolerate. Since then ang daming bawal na pagkain. Naging conscious ako sa eating time at eating habits ko at pati mga pagkain na kinakain ako. My health gets better kasi ocassional na lang sumakit ang gastro ko pero naging mahina pati ang panunaw ko. Hirap ako sa pagdumi at madalas akong dumumi ng may kasamang dugo. Until nagka hemmoroid ako (almoranas) causing me to underwent an hemmoroidectomy last Aug 2006. I was advised to refrain from eating meat and fatty foods. I was more on foods rich in fiber. But a month after my operation, mas lalo akong nabahala kasi dumudumi na ako ng fresh blood without a stool. I almost have had the indications of a Colon cancer except that I was gaining weight instead of loosing it. So last Dec 2006, I underwent another operation which is called Colonoscopy. Good for me kasi may namamaga lang sa bungad ng **** ko. Di ko na maalala yung gamot na nireseta sa akin.
Noong kasagsagan ng sakit ko sa gastro late of 2005 and early 2006, naging matakaw ako sa pagkain. The more I eat kasi, the lesser the pain I felt. Saka ang lakas ng gana ko sa pagkain. I don't know if it's because of the medicines I take. From my original 96 lbs weight, I reached 160 lbs. First time ko magka bilbil in my whole life at sobra laki ng tiyan ko. But then I continue with the medicines tapos I go to the gym regularly and eat a balanced food. Now, I don't take any medicines anymore. I stopped taking medicines since April 2006. Kung samasakit man ang gastro ko, once in a blue moon na lang at very very mild pain na lang. I'm currently on 120 lbs na ngayon.
My advise, eat fruits and vegetables as much as possible, exercise regularly and drinks lots of water. Hanggat kaya mong imiwas sa meat and fatty foods, do it. Don't smoke and drink any alcohol kahit mild lang kasi it will trigger it. Don't ever drink any type of soda or softdrinks as well. Saka practice yung pakonti konting pagkain lang pero madalas. Don't eat so full.
My gastro came like a blessing in disguise kasi I learned to be more health and physically concious at an early age. I'm just 27 now. My body is now toned and firmed, a lot better than my old body looks. Noon, dream ko tumaba pero kahit anong kain ko, di ako tumataba. After my gastro, I achieved the body that I dreamed of.
