H-Pylori Treatment Nightmare!!!!



Recommended Posts

Of course I tested positive for the H-Pylori bacteria/gastritis and now have to be on medication to cure me before surgery. I was prescribed and took proton inhibitors and antibiotics this morning at work and shortly thereafter began feeling serious nausea and pain in my stomach. It was so bad that I had a trash can in front on me JIC I had to throw up. Luckily it passed and I've taken another dose tonight with some spacing (pro inh on an empty stomach and antibiotics 2hrs later on a full stomach) and so far nothing is going awry. I'm just so scared it may reoccur. Did anyone have to deal with this?

I had the same thing and it was terrible. So many pills at once and I felt sick every single day of the 2 weeks. Everyone is different of course, but this was my experience. I missed 2 days of work at one point for some major stomach issues.

Did you have to do the regimen more than the 14 days? Did you take anything else to help get a negative result when you got tested again? I have heard some say pepto bismol helps but not sure? I am taking biaxin, previcide and amoxicilin but want to make sure that it is gone before i do the test again as i don't want another positive result and have to do this all over :(

I did my 14 day treatment with no problems. Retested and it came BA negative. Just stick with it. I always took mines with milk to coat my stomach. Good luck

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.
