Topic: Metoclopramide(Reglan) and Stomach Pain
Has anyone been on, or, is on, this medication. My husband is having severe stomach pains, whether he eats or not. Lots of hiccuping and belching We had an appt. with GI Dr. who did an EGD procedure couple of days ago, to see what was going on. Dr. said there was bile and some food in his stomach which would mean it is not draining quickly enough. He had the stomach bypass in November. Oncologist said it will take upwards of 12 months for recovery from this surgery. GI Dr. has put him on this medication 4x day. Said it would help drain better. Last night the noise from his stomach, rolling and groaning and rumbling mostly kept him awake. I guess you could say his stomach was definitely active.I wondered if anyone has similar problems. He also goes from constipation to diarrhea. He has taken stool softeners but that causes mostly runny stools even with one dose. Oncologist said he probably has scar tissue and that can get inflamed causing pain and that goes along with the stomach bypass surgery. Any information is always appreciated. Thanks.
