I had H Pylori too, when I found out I was so freaked out, but after I looked on different WLS forums I found out it is very common.

Good luck to everyone with the up coming surgery dates!

Ashleyxx I was a little freaked out when the dr called to tell me I have it. I am currently on a strong dose of antibiotics and Prevacid that I have to take 4 pills 2 times a day. From what I have read and heard from different physicians it is a very common thing that can be treated with antibiotics. I am on day 4 of a 14 day treatment then after that I have to wait 30 days and be rechecked to make sure it's gone. Hopefully it will be when I go back to the gi dr for a repeat test.

Decided to have surgery June 2011. I finished all my classes in December only thing I had to do was the test for H Pylori. Came back positive, did the two weeks of anti-biotics retested a month after that still had it. Two more weeks of stronger anti-biotics another month of waiting. Finally gone. Took one year to get it done but finally did on june 4th. Delays can happen, but it will get done.

My docs said don't worry. I had to do a retest stool sample just dropped off today. Yuck! If it's positive 7 days of antibiotics. She never mentioned anything about a 30 day retest. However, since you all are saying 30 days Tis probably the case :( was hoping for an August 1 sleeve!

Yea that REALLY SUCKS if I have to wait THIRTY DAYS?!! Im just extremely mad, because my doctor didnt prescribe me anything to treat it despite her know since beginning of JUNE! When I last spoke to my surgeons assistant she didnt mention waiting thirty days. I will call in the morning.

So this is a retest so I am assuming this is your first stool drop off from knowing about the H pylori via endoscopy or other means? Were you prescribed anything before, and if so how long were you on it?

Btw, to anyone else how long did it take to get the results of the stool/breath/blood taste? I am hoping my hospital does their own blood test.

Hi. I found out last Friday July 6 from a blood test. The doc told me they needed a confirmation test which was a stool sample. I dropped that off today July 10. I have not been prescribed anything! Hopefully tomorrow they will have the results of the poop and she will call in a script tomorrow so I can start treatment while insurance is out for review! Whew! :)

Wait... They sent out your paperwork to insurance? I was told straight up my insurance will deny my butt with a positive H pylori. Ugh.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
