52 yr old husband quit smoking 4 mos ago and has been sick since. Cough, nausea, lost 15 lbs, Primary doc said post nasal drip and presribed nos drops. Had upper GI showed no esophageal abnormalities, no evidence for reflux or esophagitis. Due to this increased weight loss and our primary doc doing no testing whatsoever, had a cardiologist I work for look at him, he diagnosed with H pylori and prescribed 2 week triple pack. Also ordered CT chest which showed diffuse emphysematous changes and localized area of parenchymal opacity suggestive of a region of prior infection with scarring and calcification. Superimposing mild ground glass density in this area also raises possibility of a superimposing acue process. Primary doctor says nothing to worry about. He was till sick. Went back to Primary Had endoscopy and biopsy showed acid reflux in lower esophagus, inflammation due to H Pylori. Prescribed 14 day Amoxicillin,Biaxin & Prilosec. And to take Prilosec once a day before 1st meal. Nausea and weight loss stopped, but cough has not. Husband is living on cough drops to no avail. Any suggestions??
