Sorry I just hate to ruin your day,
but I had treatment for H.Pylori over two yrs ago and my stomach is in a bad way still.
Ive had such a number of symptoms lately I'm wondering if it hasn't come back again.
I have a hospital appointment in Sept and wonder what will happen now.
I wish you luck and hope someone answers your query in a more positive manner. Solofelix.

Have you tried Aloe Vera Juice or Manuka honey.
A.V.J is said to be good for the digestion also Manuka Honey. Sadly I cant take M. H. as it brings me out in Thrush in my mouth (too much sugar) it upsets my Candida.
All the best, Solofelix.

It takes a long journey for most of all. For me, chronic gastritis has made my life miserable for 9 months ... and still with me... I am too wondering if I ever get heal even it said MILD??. But even mild can be so UNCOMFORTABLE! I feel for those who are severe... :(

Re: h pylori gone now stuck with gastritis
 
I have the same.
Sometimes I feel what comes after H.Pylori treatment is as bad if not worse (In my case) as the H.Pylori.
Since my treatment over two yrs ago I now have AR/GERD and a Hiatal-Hernia.
Nausea ,Belching and Gnawing stomach are an every day occurrence despite all sorts of medication.
My Dr thinks mine has returned but any further treatment I shall avoid, if the after effects are like this.
Good Luck to all fellow sufferers . Solofelix.

My chronic gastritis is under control now...but not heal yet.. Just no pain.. But on very bland diet. not sure what will happen if I eat something with a little sauce?? Sigh! But!!!! Here comes another problem for me... Lower intestine! I developed MAJOR gas/bloating no matter what I eat to the extend that my abdomen above belly button wanna explode n pain! Like it can no longer hold any further gas. Not sure if the pain was cause by intestine wall being stretch too long and causing iritation on lining? Not sure! I press it deep down, no pain. But if I press it one after another (faster speed), it pain! My intestine oso so noisy that I can feel it moving (gas or intestine movement)? I tried Simithicone , Anti-Spasm, Slow down gut movement medicine, all failed... Only Activated Charcoal provide me some release due to its ability to absorb intestinal gas, but that's not what I want... Because once I stop taking it, gas keep on producing! I don't know why!!! Anyone experience this or know why? Could it be the PPI? But I have stop it for 11 days now.... no improvement......... Help!!!!

I have tried Aloe Vera Juice, Probiotics and Grapefruit Seed Extract.
Cant say they did anything really.
I tried Manuka Honey which made me feel fairly good in myself but bought me out in Thrush in my mouth (too much sugar).
Just have to keep trying!!.. Solofelix.

Do you have major gas in your intestine? It's so pain and uncomfortable! I'm thinking to have a colonyscopy but afraid the drink solution would do harm/hurt our stomach lining! Would it??

All of sudden my tongue is full of "taste bud" that inflamed, blood clot in gum area (side, upper region). Been for weeks.... subside a little but not gone. If I did a little hot, it comes up again. Don't know why. Have to keep put on Aloclar gel on my tongue.

Is Grapefruit seed extract safe for gastritis? I do not have Hpylori. I also taking lotsssssssss of other supplements. I don't know which really works but some of it certainly does help.

Now thinking would like to add Colostrum, Grapefruit Seed, Peppermint Oil, Oregano Oil, Quercetin. Is all these safe for us????

What about Turmeric & Ginger? Heard ot helps with inflammation but some web suggest to avoid it.

Hi, You don't drink any solution for a Colonoscopy. You do that for a CT Scan.
For a Colonoscopy you take some kind of laxative to clean out your bowel 24 hrs beforehand.
It is not a problem (Ive had two) just an inconvenience as you spend quite a bit of time in the bathroom.
