Ulcer Disease

Introduction of Ulcer Disease

Ulcer disease or stomach ulcers, or gastric ulcers, are painful sores in the stomach lining. Stomach ulcers are a kind of peptic ulcer disease. Peptic ulcers are usually ulcers that affect both the small intestines and the stomach.

Stomach ulcers occur when the thick layer of mucus protects your stomach, and the digestive juices are reduced. It allows the digestive acids to eat away at the tissues that line the stomach, leading to an ulcer.

Stomach ulcers are easy to cure but can become severe without proper treatment.

Symptoms of ulcer disease

Several symptoms are associated with stomach ulcers. The severity of the symptoms usually depends on the severity of the ulcer.

One of the most common symptoms is a pain in the middle of your abdomen between the belly button and the chest or a burning sensation. Typically, the pain will be more intense when your stomach is empty and may last for a few minutes to several hours.

Other common symptoms and signs of ulcers include:

  • Vomit that looks like coffee grounds or bloody
  • Tarry, dark stools
  • Anemia, whose symptoms can include pale skin, shortness of breath, drinking, or eating.
  • Pain that may improve when you take antacids, drink, or eat
  • Heartburn, which is a burning sensation in the chest
  • Acid reflux or burping
  • Feeling easily full
  • Bloating
  • Vomiting or nausea
  • Not wanting to eat due to pain
  • Weight loss
  • Dull pain in the stomach

Preparation for ulcer disease

Before the surgery, your practitioner will obtain imaging tests that help plan the procedure. It can include non-invasive tests along with imaging obtained with an endoscopy.

You will need blood tests like a complete blood count (CBC) to evaluate your anemia.

During the surgery preparation and anesthesia, you will need a blood chemistry panel, chest X-ray, and electrocardiogram (EKG).
