Re: After H Pylori Treatment symptoms

If you, and all the people living with you, look after your personal hygiene, especially brushing teeth every morning, then the chance of catching it back is very very low.

There are couples who were married for decades and never infect each other.

Re: Test result just came negative, but I'm still suspicious

unfortunately i am not expert in stool test. However, i would expect that an abnormal stool will affect the test outcome. Nevertheless if you want, you can always get another test done.

Re: I need help i am desperate

Most important is you are free of H. pylori now. Continue the PPI since it's working. Talk to your doctor about the pain if it doesnt improve in another week or two.

Re: RUT: positive or negative?

higher dose = higher cure rate = higher risk of side effect.

but we have been prescribing 240mg and QID for many years. Nevertheless, you still have to let your doctor know and look after you.

Re: Diagnosed with h pylori

The sour taste is probably acid reflux. You can take some ranitidine to neutralise the acid.
you can continue ranitidine until the night before breath test.

having acid reflux doesnt mean you still have H. pylori. Some people just take longer to heal.

Re: Stopping PPI as needed

sounds like a good news. if you feel good without taking it, then you dont need to take PPI anymore. But make sure you discuss this with your doctor. So he can monitor your condition.
