Endoscopy Result.

Well, i got my results back yesterday. The oesophagus is normal but they say i have Chronic active gastris, caused by H pilori. They are staring me on 2 anti-biotic for 2 weeks.

So let's see. I have stoped the PPI, I will fight it, i am no longer going to take them.

Re: Endoscopy Result.

Hi John...please don't stop your ppi's until pylori has gone...
the use of only one medication to treat H. pylori is not recommended... the most effective treatment is a 2-week course of treatment called triple therapy. It involves taking two antibiotics to kill the bacteria and either an acid suppressor or stomach-lining shield. Two-week triple therapy reduces ulcer symptoms, kills the bacteria, and prevents ulcer recurrence in more than 90 percent of patients.

Re: Endoscopy Result.

thank you for your advice. I am sticking to it. it's just that i have never ever taken that many pills in my life (4 pills 2x a day: amoxicillin, clarithromycin and prevacid ) and the pills are huge. i don't have diarrhea just some stomach pain and i feel hungrier that usual.
2 weeks goes fast.
