Does anyone know of certain foods that can help manage stomach pain associated with Lymphoma Cancer?

their are severak things that you might try that often work for my patients. first i would take proBiotic acidophilus with bifidus. usually 2 million units about twenty minutes before meals or sleep. Their are several types of mint tea that work well for stomach problems. i like the morrcan mint tea from twings, as it has several items that help. also eating small meals, every three hours so that the stomach is not empty. often times a empty stomach causes great pain. have they checked for ulcers? Ulcers in the gut tract are often the cause of pain. their are several areas that can and will cause gut problems.Reducing high acid foods, spicey foods will also sometimes help with these problems. perhaps the best advise is that you share this problem with your doctor. If he unable to treat your problem have him/her send you to a GI doctor.Since medication can cause problems, taking over the counter medication can cause problems with prescription medication make sure that both your doctor and pharmacologist work together to provide the best treatment. Hopefully your are using only 1 pharmacy for all your medications. Patients often use many pharmacies for prescriptions, while its nice to spread the business you are doing a disservice to your self and your doctor. Using one pharmacy will help you to understand your medications, it will also keep you from having problems with medications. It also keeps the prescriptions simpler and helps to stop duplication and inter drug reactions. i hope that this will help with your health problems. If you have any further questions please e-mail me.

Lymphoid Tissue growth after Tonsillectomy?

I had my tonsils removed in Jan this year. However, I had lumps start to grow about 3 weeks after the surgery. One side the lumps were on the tonsil bed on the other side however they were in front of the tonsil bed, no surgery had happened there. The ENT specialist decided it was best to remove the lumps and to check what they were. I had the lumps removed on Tuesday this past week and test results came back that they were lymphoid tissue. Did the surgeon leave tonsil tissue behind after the first surgery? If so, why the lumps on the other side? What caused the lumps to grow? The lumps seemed to keep growing and were getting big.

Tonsils are pair of lymphoid tissue collections on the side of the oropharynx (back of the mouth/ throat). They are part of a ring of lymphoid tissue (Waldeyer’s ring), which also includes the adenoids.

Tonsils do not grow back if removed completely. During a tonsillectomy, most of each tonsil is removed. Some tissue often remains, which means theycan occasionally regenerate — although they probably won't grow back completely or to their original size.  (+ info)
