How long before my nausea will go away?

The cure of Hp usually requires antibiotics. Other things have been tried and have a weaker effect.

I'm currently in the process for further investigation CT Scan for a little hemangioma on the liver and hitus hernia, Urea Breath Test in 10 days and to follow up with a kidney doctor due to the dehydration I drink lots of fluids.

In the mean time as I'm writing I have a 24 hours holter monitor and I stopped Omoprozole as it's my 2nd day. The Nausea attacks in the morning right after breakfast or right after early dinner after a nap. I've been fighting my self to eat but all what I'm having after food is major pulpitation.

Dehydration once I wake up. Not sure if anybody is having any other symptoms like mine after the treatment. I'm now sitting at 59 Kgs/ 24 years old/ Male.

Urea breath test is done. H Paylori has been eradicated and I'm sitting at 20. I slowly started to gain my energy back.

Although my nausea was mainly from eating brow bread I switched to white bread and I have to say it's been working well. My only issues currently is that the hitus hernia may require surgery due to being at 4 cm. I'm developing reactions to many medication and food.

Like the Ion in the contrast for ct scan caused shivers and pulpitation. Major heart burn all the time with pulpitation increasing. My heart has been checked by Holter test and it's been fine.

I still struggle when I eat meat but I'm fine with chicken and fish. I cannot eat anything with high acidity like orange, tomato or lemon. It will take a long time I believe to get back to normal but I think the nausea is related to my food habits and sensativity. Not sure if anyone is having symptoms that are closet to mine but I have to have one tachycardia attach from gas or heartburn everyday.

My next treatment steps will be MRI for the little hemongioma on my liver, barium test to measure the hitus hernia, colonoscopy and mri after making sure that i have not developed any allergies from the Contrast or Ion.

good to know that your H. pylori has been eradicated! i think that's fabulous news. at least now you can focus on your recovery. Unfortunately i cannot tell you the recovery time as everyone is different. it depends on how much damage has been done by the H. pylori. anyway, with healthy food and exercise, i am sure you'll gradually improve.

I've noticed that since I've cut down on Milk, Coffee, Tea and Brown Bread the nausea is very minimalistic. Also the past days I've been feeling a bit better just a tad slap of sickness after food. I noticed my new symptoms for the 3rd week after the H Paylori eradication has mainly been from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and the Hiatus Hernia (4 CM) that I didn't know of until I performed an Endoscopy for the H Paylori.

For the time I'm on the following medication and it has been helping me with the Nausea, Heartburn and IBS:

1- MEVA - Mebeverine HCI
2- Pariet (20 MG) - Rebaprazole Sodium and Mannitol
3- UNIENZYME C MPS - (Contains: Fungal Diastase, Papain USP, Simethicone USP, Activated Charcol BP, Nicotinamide BP)

*To be taken for 15 Days

Recently the cramps and the tightened muscles below the rib cage above belly have always been stressed especially after taking dumps. Taking Unienzyme makes me feel sick for an hour but once it settles its ok. Pariet has been more handy for me than Omaprazole or Nexium as it helps with the nausea. The MEVA reliefs the pain of the tightened muscles.

Since I lost most of my energy in the past month I started walking on the beach for 10 minutes only barefoot every day (sunset time) and it has been slowly helping.
Drinking warm glass of water as soon as I get up has been helping me as well. You guys are not alone with the nausea :) I'll keep updating with my symptoms and the aftermath of H Paylori treatment. Please comment if you see any of my treatment way isn't write so I can learn from you :)

My next step is that I'll be flying to Germany to follow up with my Liver Hemongioma (.8 mm) and get my gut checked once again properly (Inshallah) all goes well.

I have had light to moderate nausea for about 2 months now. I never vomited (though came close once or twice). The symptoms are intermittent. Sometimes I could go 3 days or more with barely any issues. Then, the nausea would just sort of arise. Sometimes 2 hrs after eating, sometimes just randomly. I took an H.Pylori blood test recommended by my GI Doc, and they said it was positive. I did the treatment for 2 weeks (2 antibiotics and Prilosec) and there was actually a 6 day period where I felt great! Then it slowly came back again.

I have been off of the medicine for one week, and things are still touch and go. I can go 1 to 2 days with no symptoms, and then 1 to 2 days with nausea of varying intensity.

I have not had any stool issues at all. Consistency/Regularity/Color has been just fine. I also have not had any stomach PAIN or anything like that. Maybe some bloating here and there, but it's basically just nausea, and tiredness while it's going on.

I have been somewhat negligent in watching what I eat, but it's still tough to see a correlation in what I eat versus the symptoms.
I wondered if it was stress-related at first, but it just didn't add up. Stressful situations would progress with no nausea, and then I could be at home relaxing with a movie and it would set on.

My main question is...
After having off and on nausea for a couple months, how long will it typically take AFTER treatment ends to feel normal again? I don't feel like death or anything, only lost maybe 5lbs total, but mentally things are just getting to me. I start to wonder if I'll ever feel normal. I have a 1yr old and on certain nights I can't really play with her and have fun as much as I'd like, and this is what's bothering me the most.

I'm sure my GI Doc will recommend a stool test to confirm eradication in another week or so, but I'm just looking for some mental stability and for someone to put my mind at ease? If it's typical for light nausea to take a month to go away after H.Pylori treatment ends, I'd just like to hear that.
Did you ever get better?
