Managing Digestive Disorders

My name is Lilith Maclin and if you suffer from a digestive disorder, you can find a wealth of information about this type of medical condition in my blog. Three years ago, my husband was having severe stomach cramps and his doctor told him that he had a digestive disorder called ulcerative colitis. After my husband was diagnosed, I did thorough research to learn how to control and manage this disorder. We kept track of everything that my husband ate and when a certain food caused a flare-up of his condition, he eliminated that food from his diet. By learning all we could about this digestive disorder, my husband has been able to live pain free. If you want more information about this disorder and how to manage it, you can find it here by reading my blog.

Dealing With Stomach Cancer

Louella Davidson

Does eating food and drinking always lead to you vomiting no matter what is consumed? If you are now losing a substantial amount of weight due to avoiding food, it is worth getting your stomach examined by a physician. Vomiting up food and drinks on a regular basis is one of the symptoms of stomach cancer, which means that you will need to start undergoing treatment as soon as possible if it is necessary. If a diagnosis is made for the condition, you can then find out how far it has advanced. Take a look at the information below for general information about stomach cancer.

Common Stomach Cancer Symptoms

Other than vomiting up food and drinks, stomach cancer can cause pain that ranges from being minimal to severe. Experiencing heartburn on a regular basis can also be due to the presence of stomach cancer, especially if it is more severe than usual. The condition can lead to you losing energy and feeling fatigue to the point of not wanting to perform your typical daily activities. During the times that you consume food, stomach cancer can cause you to feel full after only a eating a small amount. Keep in mind that many of the symptoms that are associated with stomach cancer can easily be related to something else, which is why a professional diagnosis is a must.

Undergoing Tests for a Diagnosis

Performing an endoscopy is what most physicians to diagnose stomach cancer. The tests involves a narrow tube being place in your throat and sent down into your stomach. The tube is also equipped with a camera that allows the physician to look for tumor, cysts, and other problems that are within the stomach. Imaging tests are also performed during the diagnosis process for stomach tests. Basically, the tests allows images of your stomach to be obtained via x-rays and similar methods.

Attempting Treatment Via NanoKnife

Drugs and therapy are common methods that are used for treating cancer. In the worst case scenario, you might have to undergo surgery. However, if you want to avoid surgery, a physician may be able to perform a procedure that is called NanoKnife. Several thin needles will be guided into your stomach area to surround the tumor, which doesn't involve any incisions needing to be made. The needles are used for making small holes in the tumor and so irreversible electroporation can be done to kill off the cancer cells. NanoKnife can actually be performed on an outpatient basis, and you will not need a lot of time to heal after the procedure.
