Update after endoscopy

The various unpleasant manifestations of Helicobacter can be described here. Remember however that the great majority of persons with Hp have no symptoms that they are aware of and consider themselves normal.

Update after endoscopy

Post by newpylori » Mon Jun 03, 2019 3:47 pm

Today went back to doc to discuss results of endoscopy.

The tissue samples + culture turned out no evidence of HP. But all specimens show "moderate chronic inflamation" or "mild chronic inflammation".

But the doc observed a "fold" during endoscopy and from here took tissue sample. The report for this specimen says "moderate chronic inflammation and reactive hyperplastic changes. Focal mild incomplete intenstinal metaplasia is identified. No activity or morphologically identifiable HP is identified (HP stain performed). No evidence of dysplasia or malignancy.

But she still suggested I do another endoscopy in 3 years.

Is this normal damage from the HP which thankfully now seems gone? Does this mean I have higher risk of stomach cancer later? I am 53 now. Male.

sounds like your HP is now gone. I agree that you should do another endoscopy in 3 yrs time.

when you are over 50 yrs old, or when certain damage is done that is non-reversible, the cancer risk remain high. That's why we encourage people to get treatment even when there is no symptoms.

Prof Marshall likes to prescribe Vit C to reduce risk of gastric cancer.
you can take moderate dose of Vit C daily to reduce the risk.

Thanks!!

The stomach discomfort and mild pain that occurs, should I pop the Omeprazole or just bear with it, and rely on diet control etc., now that the HP is gone?

I am worried about drug dependence so about three weeks before the scope I had stopped and didn't resume.

If PPI can ease your symptom, you should take it.

Have you done a follow up checkup to see if you still have H. pylori? if you have not done endoscopy before, you should book one.
