Re: How is it possible to test positive for HP through blood test and negative when doing the biopsy from a gastroscope?

You should do an Hpylori breath test. Blood test will only show that you were infected at some point in your life. Endoscopy isn't always accurate especially if they don't get a biopsy from the right area.

Re: Finally tested NEGATIVE for h pylori but why am I still Bloating?!

If your stomach feels fine, try using HCL with pepsin. Low stomach acid causes bloating.

Re: Endoscopy 2.5 weeks after treatment

That's the scary part. If only 1% survive.. then it can evade the test too right?

In my case.. I tested for parasites, worms, and food allergies. All came back clean but had the gastritis. Only thing found was the H pylori.

Re: Endoscopy 2.5 weeks after treatment

Hope so. Just always worried that this bug can come back like that.. especially hearing all the stories out there. I'm not 100% so I'm still worried. Was on Carafate so that made me feel better but makes me more worried at the same time? So I just stopped taking meds outside of the Zantac for now. W...

Re: Endoscopy 2.5 weeks after treatment

Thanks for your advice. Should I wait a month or two weeks?

When I did the endoscopy, it was 2.5 weeks after Pylera. I wasn't on PPI or sucrafate during that time. So when he did the culture, I was clean for 2.5 weeks.
