Thanks! And thanks for reassuring me earlier~

Doctor wants me to take Prilosec twice a day for the next 10 days. She says it's safe to do so after I asked her about the box directions (since it's the 24hr delayed release tablets)

My first treament faild so i went on a 2 treatment after the endoscopy showed i still had HP,now am HP free. But i dont think u should go on a 2 treatment of antibiotics before your are sure u still have hp. Ask for an endoscopy or for a breath test to be sure.

Stool test, IF done correctly, is as accurate as breath test. However, depending on the person running the test, the accuracy may differ across laboratories.

For Helico_expert or anyone else available:

since friday night I've been having cramps in my lower abdomen (and I'm not even close to my period so that rules that out) and tonight I've had diarrhea twice...

I started having cramps in my lower abdomen (like where the large intestine/small intestine is) and the cramps got more frequent on saturday and I've had two bouts of diarrhea out of the blue...

I'm really worried that the prilosec has allowed something like c diff to mess up my system... I heard that can happen if someone takes a PPI or if they've been on antibiotics...
