Question Hpylori

Hi anyone have experience with this? I finished my meds in July and still don't feel good. When I touch my stomach it's tender. Any suggestions???

Re: Hpylori

The damage (gastritis) caused by the H Pylori may take some time to heal even though the infection is gone.

Are you taking a proton pump inhibitor (Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid, etc)?

Re: Hpylori

Yes, I am taking Nexium, but it doesn't seem to be helping. See a gastro next week. Wondering if he will treat me again or want to do some test??

Thanks, Kim

Re: Hpylori

The treatment is effective about 80% of the time but since you're still having symptoms he might want to retest you for H Pylori. If you test positive for HP again they'll just restart with a different antibiotic for a second go round.


If you're not infected, he might want to change your PPI (nexium) to another type of antacid to see if that works better for you.

Re: Hpylori

are you still burping
you need to be tested 6 weeks after finishing your antibiotic thereapy
lucky me took all 4 therapys without getting rid of it
finally got sent to the infectious diease doc and his last effort worked

there are some natural rememdies and i was planning on trying them if the meds didnt work
virgin pine nut oil
would be the first i would try but there is more
good luck
