Hi Narda and Niecsey,
I'm doing okay. Definitely not as bad as i was doing immediately following taking the Triple Therapy, but not significantly better to the point where I feel that the treatment was a success. narda-- I'm sorry you feel worse!!! I really do wonder if it's gastritis caused by the antibiotics. Have you tried Mastic Gum, Slippery Elm or any of the other herbs out there that are supposed to soothe the stomach lining? Are you taking probiotics. Maybe that stuff would help? I dunno. I've been taking Iberogast (a German formula containing lots of herbs) with meals for the last 6 weeks now. It might be doing a little bit of good, but given that I have good days and bad, it's hard to tell. i would figure that if it was truly helping, I would have more consistent relief.
Narda, I hope your GP can shed some light on your situation-- even though he/she isn't a GI doc. And when you see your GI doc, be ready to assault him/her with lots of questions! I like to write down what I want to say and bring it in with me!
Niecsey, have you seen your doc lately? Do you know if your H Pylori is gone? I should find out soon if mine is gone. Just gotta take a stool sample to a lab. Fun! Other than that, I had another ab ultrasound on Monday-- we'll see if I have any gallstones. the first time they did it, they said I had small "flecks" floating in there. Whatever that means!
Talk to you all soon!
