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' date=' 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.[/quote']

My blood test was back to my Dr. Within 3 days. It takes a little longer than the other blood tests.

I had the blood test and it came back positive yesterday. Today I had my upper GI endoscopy, gastroenterologist told me I have gastritis, but the confirming biopsy will come back on Monday. My surgeon called in a prepac which costs over 500 dollars! My co pay was about 235.00. Luckily, I am an RN and realized the ripoff and refused it at the pharmacy. i called the nurse and told her to order the 2 antibiotics and the prevacid seperately and in generic. My co-pay dropped to 27.00 the drucg company can keep their tidy little Prevpac and I'll keep my money. This should clear up before i finish mt 3rd nutrition visit in sept.

I called and they said it would take three days. I take the stool test on day eleven. The surgeons assistant said it should be clear by day ten so I am crossing my fingers it worked. If not I will see what happens after. Might retest on the sixteenth day since the fourteenth day is a weekend. If it still comes negative then I will most likely need to take the quadruple dose of meds.

Hi. Not sure about the date. They don't assign dates until insurance is done. The group I am with has two amazing surgeons so I asked for first available. I'm hoping ASAP! I'll keep the group updated.

Oh okay. I noticed that about half of people get their dates prior to sending it to insurance and the other half get it after sending it.

      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.
