    They usually do it as part of the blood work. However, if it is inconclusive they do the breath test. The results from the upper GI is conclusive also if they get it back in time.

    I had to do the EGD but the results won't be back for 7 to 10 days.
  9. Hang in there girl , fruit punch crystal light freeze it and you will feel much better.
  10. You can ask what size bougie they will use on your stomach? ask about h.pylori and the effects of it holding up your surgery date. Hair loss and if it can be prevented? Is the weightloss 50% to 75% of your excess weight which makes you obesse or of your total weight? Hope that helps.

    That also test for h.pylori with blood test. They may ask for additional test such as the breath test. If your blood test show negative for H. Pylori they may not ask for an EGD. or a breath test.

  17. Don't know what is going on first they said sleeve is not covered. Then it is covered did all paperwork and it is not covered? Now it is covered I am confused. My employer said " I don't know" Good thing benefit person said she is going to try and find out hopefully monday. My doctor said $60,000 for the sleeve. Seriously, who can pay for that? Omg really, really , really. I thought it was much cheeper. Not including hospital stay. Seriously, Seriously, seriously ! I really trust this doctore but I am going to stay postive. Any information , anyone at all! I am suppose to have surgery July 3rd now my insurance company tells me 4 weeks before surgery they are not sure if it is covered.

    Okay I took my breath test for h.pylori and I won't find out if I am having surgery until the day of surgery. I am so bummed out. I can't wait anoher 2 or 3 weeks for surgery. However, I think it is harder waiting until the day before surgery to find out if it will happened. What symptoms if any did anyone have after taking the liquid and breath test for h.pylori?

    I have to blow in a bag to assure the doctor I don't have stomach bacteria. I already took a Upper GI Endoscopy and the doctor said everything is perfect. However, the test results which finalize the test will take 7 to 10 days. My blood results were inconclusive, which mean the numbers were not low enough to tell I didn't have stomach bacteria and not high enough to show I had stomach bacteria. Today I have an appointment to get clearance for surgery and then I have to go back to the doctor to blow in a bag. This is nerve racking. ughhh! I will know something in a few hours.
