Stomach pain & bleeding

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

Stomach pain & bleeding

Post by James88 » Thu Jun 01, 2017 4:52 am

Hi All,

- Late last year I finished a bismuth treatment for resistant helicobacter.

The results from the breath test following the treatment were good they said I was all clear of helicobacter.

Now 5-6 months later I randomly had some slight gastric bleeding and I had some stomach pain.

I visited the DR and they went all over my files and said I could have gastritis!!!!

They requested a follow up breath test which I will have in a week and also a blood test.

What could be causing this gastric bleeding?

gastric bleeding will lead to very dark stool.

if you had a follow up breath test previously and shown cleared of HP, i think your chance of catching it again is very low.

if your bleeding problem persists, you probably need a colonoscopy.
