Post Blood test for H.Pylori

Hi Everyone. I posted a message yesterday Re: Gallbladder Problems, still no replies yet. There is one other thing though. My Dr. said I could have H. Pylori & wanted to do a scope. This is really expensive though & I have a large insurance deductible. Is there just a blood test that can be done? What really are the symptoms of this ulcer causing thing? Let me know please.

I just had a blood test for a ulcer done last week
I'm sure you can get one done to.

The doctors suspected I had H. Pylorie and I had two seperate blood tests done and both came back negative. Later I had a scope and they took a biopsy of the tissue in my stomach and it came back positive. I think that you should go for the scope because your doctor may find other problems that exist as well.
