Biopsy came back negative... still confused..

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

Biopsy came back negative... still confused..

Post by curiousgeorge007 » Wed Oct 03, 2018 2:25 pm

31 M, asian decent. I was feeling tired and bloated all the time, so I decided to see a GI doctor. He took x-rays, found colon in my stool prescribed miralax.

Had blood work done, all was normal. Just recently had an endoscopy done, and biopsy came back negative. I did a h pylori triple treatment regimen in June, and since then I have been feeling 50x more bloated even though samples show h pylori eradicated. I feel I may have gastroparesis, sibo, undetected h pylori?

ANYTHING I eat makes the bloating worse, I get full quickly. I have tried FODMAPS diet, antidepressants, hyoscyamine, bentyl,, plethora of other meds. I am at the point where I want to try antibiotics again, just amoxicillin to see if maybe I have some sort of bacterial infection. I belch so much, feel very lethargic, and am becoming very depressed with this bloating. I am very healthy, low BMI, eat clean, exercise.

I feel like docs are just saying IBS-C because we really don't know what is wrong with you.

in Australia, 80% of people with gastric symptoms are not related to H. pylori. Unfortunately we still dont know what causes the digestive problem.
