Still burping after triple therapy normal? Please help!!!

Post by Ltb » Sun Jan 12, 2014 10:31 am

Hi
Just finished triple therapy and i have to say i dont feel that different. Im still burping a lot even on empty stomach. I was diagnosed just over a week ago with a peptic ulcer and gastritis. Doctor said i must have h pylori as ive been having chronic acid burps for 7 months. This is really my main constant symptom aswell as heartburn. Anyway ive just finished the antibiotics and only side effects were watery diarreah really not too bad. My real worry is ive not noticed improvement yet and now have to take omeprazole for the remaining 3 weeks to heal the ulcer.

Should i still be having burping after triple therapy? Does it mean i still have h pylori? Anyone have a similar situation regarding the burps? Please help im freaking out!!

I just replied someone else in regard to the burping.

I would suggest you wait for a month and do a follow up breath test to check if the treatment is successful.

In regards to the burping, it depends on individual. For most people, the burping will gradually go away (within a month). For a minority, the burping continues for unknown reason.

Hi ive just been told by a pharmacist that the burping should have stopped during the triple therapy. She said that the h pylori make "wind" and yhat is whats causing the burping!! If this is true i must still have it? Anyone got any views on this?

based on what I observed, it's not always the bacteria's fault on the "wind". we shallowed a lot of "wind" unintentionally too. As the stomach is "moving", it creates air bubbles too.

I think your stomach is the the recovering mode. Hopefully your burping will subside in the next few weeks. Also, remember to do a followup breath test after a month.

Thanks. Are there lots of people on here who gave burping continuing for a few weeks then? My burps have always been constant small burps all through the day. Sometimes i get out of bed and do 5 or 6 burps then have a glass of water more burps. When not on ppi drugs each burp would be acidic causing heartburn. Doctors just thought it was gerd but i knew it wasnt. Burping and weird tasting burps have been my main symptom until i got the ulcer!

It's almost a week after you completed your treatment. Have to wait another 3 weeks without PPI to check if the treatment is successful. Have you tried any thing to ease the burping? like ginger or mint? You may try infaco which is given to baby to ease the burping.

sounds awful. But gerd has relatively risk. if it happened too frequently, its better you take some H2 blocker to control it until you are ready for the next breath test.
