Right! It's better to treat it now. You sure don't want to give your new angry little tummy anything ELSE to gripe about after surgery!!!smile.gif

H. pylori is the bacterium that causes stomach ulcers. It is a really good thing they are taking care of this issue now.

I came back positive for H Pylori as well. Just a heads up - the meds are rough!! You take 4 pills, 4 times per day. Ugh

Yep! I had the Hpylori too! And I agree about the antibiotics, they are rough!! Made me feel sick for about 4 days. THEY ARE STRONG!! Have to take lots of them for 14 days and double up on my PPI too!!

Better to clear it up before surgery tho! They will still operate tho if you get it cleared up! Don't worry, you will be fine!

Just got back from my pcm..........she did a finger stick and it showed 479...so off she went and got me some insulin and a bunch to take home........I used to be diabetic years ago when i got it from medicine...was on prednasone for a few months and it raised my sugar through the roof but then once off of prednasone it went away....well now its back geez.

due to the military being on 4 day weekend already lol my pcm could not get a copy of my lab results showing the hpylori so she cant give me meds for it yet until tuesday when everyone is back at work so in the meantime, she ordered the same blood test at her clinic ( for tomorrow) and come tuesday we can compare both sets of results......and go from there......i just hope all goes well enough so i can still have my surgery.

I had that too before my surgery. The meds are expensive even with insurance. 4 pills twice a day. But I passed the breath test. I have had my surgery and on my way.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
