My 19 yr old daughter woke up one morning in mid Nov with stomach pains. After they didn't go a way she went to the Dr. They did tests and said gall bladder and liver and bloodwork was fine. Over the next month she was on 2 different kinds of meds. Neither helped. She went to the ER on Christmas after throwing up blood. All they did was bloodwork (fine) and tell her to see a gastroenterologist. Last week we did and she is to be scoped on Thursday. In the meantime she was told to take prilosec (not helping) There is no obvious reason she should have an ulcer but they mentioned it. She isn't stressed. Doesn't drink, coffee, alcohol or sodas. Her dad gets heartburn a couple of times a week but there is no other gastro problems in the family. I'm worried about what they might find. I'm hoping for an ulcer because I can't think of anything else but stomach cancer. I know, I am overreacting.
Can anyone tell me their story
