Re: IBS

My new GI says I probably never even had H Pylori because my symptoms don't match up.

Re: IBS

My GI told me that post infectious IBS would be "the new norm". Strange these doctors can't get anything straight.

IBS

Approximately 6 weeks after completion of antibiotics I am still constipated, gassy and bloated. I'm having the retest soon to see if I have h pylori, but now I'm doubting that I ever really had it. (I tested positive via blood) Constipation and gas was and is my only symptom other than pain, which ...

Re: After triple therapy, want to take PPI

I tried Zantac with little results. Does it take multiple days to kick in?

After triple therapy, want to take PPI

I know that I'm supposed to wait a month from antibiotics to breath test to confirm eradication, but after over 2 weeks off the triple therapy and not having an appointment for another 20 days, I'm really tempted to just take Prilosec just to see if it will make me feel better. My symptoms have retu...

Re: After H Pylori Treatment symptoms

I'm in the same boat but my doc told me to not take anything for a month after treatment (I assume because of the eradication test). But 2 weeks after treatment I just really want to give in and take Prilosec to heal my stomach. I definitely feel better after treatment but I still have pain in the a...

Re: After triple therapy

Thank you, also do you know the correlation between h pylori and stunted growth? I have had knee condition for a year that indicates a late growth spurt and I haven't grown. (Osgood Schlautters)

Re: After triple therapy

I'm on my 5th day off antibiotics and I'm feeling somewhat better, but it really depends on the time of day and if I can go to the bathroom honestly. Do you think this mean the antibiotics failed? Or that I still have an ulcer/gastritis that needs healing? I have nurse practioner appt in a week.

After triple therapy

So I completed a 14 day course of triple therapy and I was just wondering how long I have to wait after completion to start feeling normal again (if it worked). During therapy I started feeling 90% better 10 days in but toward the end of treatment I started to feel the antibiotics do a number on my ...
