Anyone have h pylori come up during their clearances??? I had an endoscopy done Monday and they took some biopsies of my stomach lining and it turns out I have h pylori.

Is pylori a bacteria? I think I've heard it before but am not sure. :)

Yep, its a bacteria and one that need to clear up before doing the surgery. I think it's a pretty simple treatment.

thier gonna give you antibiotics for 2 weeks, then you have to wait 30 days and retest. it will slow your surgery by 1 1/2 months. good luck

Yes I had to talk antibiotics for 14 days 4 pills at night and 4 in the morning. It has to be cleared before surgery the pills are huge I got tired of taking them but they clear up everything. lol

Thank you everyone for your input!!!!! I was a little upset by this news today but now that I have some more insight into it I feel a little better. Just means surgery date is going to a little further away than expected.

Of all days to read this. Having done all appts. etc. I realized I had forgotten my little cup to drop off the "sample" at the hospital-- just got the cup and the plan is to bring it tomorrow morning. I just read about how common it is after your post-- 50% of the world has it! My date is July 16th.

The lesson is:

Don't poop out on any tests!

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.

My insurance said I had to take the H pylori test before approval. I took it yesterday and didn't even know what it was. I sure hope my surgery is not delayed over this. I am scheduled for the 19th this month after already having to reschedule it from July 6th. I can't handle another delay. I am praying I don't have it. So sorry for those that had to delay for that!

I had my blood tests done today & this was one of them and I swear I will be so bummed if it comes back positive and it pushes my surgery back! I still have almost a month to go until surgery and I just don't wanna push it anymore! I am so ready for this life changing event! Hopefully they will have my results back tomorrow and I'll know for sure! Crossing Fingers!

So my surgery is July 16th, pre op appointments july 9th, and my coordinator listed all the tests being run for my blood work and then mentioned an EKG as my preop. I asked if he is testing for H. Pylori and she said he usually doesn't. Am I the only one not getting tested for it? Hmm.... I'm confused
