I just bouggt coconut oil today, apparently it is good for your stomach etc......once my symptoms play up I tend to revert to the health shops!lol I never had stomach issues until HP and I thought everything had settled down and maybe it has. Are you on a PPI? I am trying to reduce mine as dont want to be on a high dosage long term as Im sure that can have side effects too! ohhh the joys! you are so right about how precious our health is! On the herbal stuff, I also took manuka honey....oh I have tried just about everything I reckon! lol hope this helps
Thanks for your reply. Awwww sorry to hear you are having issues again....I am on PPI still yes and have to be on it for at least 6-8 weeks 20mg a day twice a day or 1 40mg daily. The gastritis symptoms are much better today
may be chatting with you have helped and relived a bit of stress.
I do drink green tea now and must say it helps a lot. The biggest problem is that I am a professional IT engineer and I am on a permanent job and was looking to go forward for contracting but now due to uncertainty I can't and its costing me a fortune on a daily basis :*(. Initially I was worried and stressed about that but now... I think to my self that I was always keen on getting more but never really realised that what I had i.e. health was more precious than anything else
!!! so now don't stress out at all. I just wish I could be myself again now.
I have had blood test (cbc), stool test and ultrasound. Other than H,pylori all came out perfect. I will be going for CT-Scan, MRI, Barium x-ray and finally endoscopy once my course is finished. Did you have an endoscopy done as well ? this last one really scares me.
