Also, the only thing I can tolerate eating is mashed potatoes. Is that going to affect the antibiotic treatment?

I'm on day 4 of treatment and boy I feel awful. Literally have to force the food and pills down :(.
When should I start to feel better? Also Ihave not had black stools or diarrhea like many report. Does this mean the treatment isn't working?

i have responded in your other post. But in general, your plan looks fine. your flagyl dose can go up a little bit more.

side effect normally start kicking in on day 3 or 4. but it is important to continue to avoid antibiotic resistance.

no diarrhea and black stool is good. hopefully you wont experience any more side effects. Try not to think about it. from experience, the more you think about it, the more likely you'll experience it. A good way is to distract yourself by doing work or playing games.

Should I worry about this not being enough antibiotics? My anxiety is thru the roof and I'm afraid I'm never going to get better

your doctor should know your local situation best. if his experience tells him that it works, then you need to have faith in him.

It's difficult for us to judge because H. pylori mutate so quickly and every region seems to have slightly different strain with slightly different properties. So, talk to your doctor and see what he thinks.

Lastly, try to gather the positive thoughts. negative energy will only make it worse. try distract yourself with things you like you to do.
