    Just my gallbladder?

    I am a 19 year old female--I am 5 ft 2 in and weight approx. 115 lbs. About 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with gastritis on top of having an inflamed gallbladder that works at about 12%. I have been taking Prevacid for those 4 years and I have yet to get my gallbladder removed, even though I am planning on it. I don't have any gallstones, but it is inflamed and there is family history of having poor gallbladders. I have always been bloated and uncomfortable after eating, but lately it has gotten....

    Vomiting After Eating Meat

    My son is 7 years old, active, healthy weight, healthy cognition, etc... When he was about 10 months old I stopped exclusively breastfeeding him and introduced him to solids per usual.

    Episodes of vomiting and diarrhea w odor

    My 16 year old son has had episodes that include acute stomach pain as well as immediate vomiting and diarrhea. They will last anywhere from 15-30 minutes until everything is out of his system. There is a very foul odor that is present during each episode. He has had these episodes since he was 7-8 years old and has had roughly 15-20 of them. There doesn't seem to be an association with specific food or anything else we can we think of that might be causing them. He has had them 8-10 weeks apart....

    Pediatric Hiatal Hernia Surgery

    Our 11 year old son has been troubled with reflux since he was a baby. Two years ago after an upper and lower endo, he was diagnosed with GERD and IBS. Since, he has been on different medications but still has periodic digestive problems (stomach aches, frequent bowel movements, "wet burps", etc.). We took him back to the Pediatric Gastrologist a couple of months ago and a second upper endo was done, this time with bravo. This showed some scaring in the lower esophagus and a large Hiatal....
