A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Stomach is damaged badly is a very vague description after the endoscopy, I would request you to upload the endoscopy reports for me to review.
We need to see how far the inflammation has spread and till what level the esophagus is involved.

Besides that, what is your normal diet daily?
Please elaborate and I can guide you further.

Could be because of an infection called H Pylori which grows in our stomach more than usual.
