Did anyone else have the H Pylori breath test as part of lab work? Does anyone know if a positive result can affect insurance approval?

I had it for lab work for my pcp and it came back negative but I don’t know it mattered or not when the lab work was I submitted to my surgeon

If you test positive they will put you on an antibiotic for a couple of months. It should not affect approval.

I tested positive and had to do 14days on antibiotics to clear it and then test again a month later.

Will not impact insurance approval, but your surgeon will want you to clear it up and test negative before surgery, because h. Pylori causes stomach irritation and is a major cause of ulcers.

Second day back home and I’m feeling okay. I know I might sound crazy but I feel like I’m not getting full of off liquids? ? I’m not necessarily hungry but I’ve read so many people’s posts about how they get this full feeling and how it’s hard to take many liquids in but I feel like I can drink all the liquids in the world. I tend to obsess over and stress out about things I don’t have to but I haven’t been able to help think that my stomach isn’t as small as it should be or what not. I got the bypass and I my thoughts are just all over the place- any advice anyone? please tell me I’m just crazy and my stomach is actually the teeny tiny size it’s supposed to be

If things go as planned, I’ll be sleeved by the end of August! July 23rd marks my 6 months of supervised weight loss, and from there it’s just a matter of waiting for insurance approval!

Dang - A month later? My pre-op is only 2 week prior to my surgery. Good to know this ahead of time. :)

You're crazy. ;)

But seriously, this a common theme I read from people post-op. That they don't feel any different so it's hard to believe that anything was actually done. I bet it won't last long though.

THANK YOU! Even in the hospital I asked one of my surgeon’s residents if I actually had the RNY because I didn’t feel that different and was able to have liquids and shakes pretty quickly. Definitely eased my mind a little bit. Wandering thoughts are no friends to me lol I just can’t wait to start seeing some progress.

I did, but when I went in for my breath test, I learned I was allergic to the solution they administrate (citrus acid) so my doc said 95% of the people that follow the two week antibiotics meds are cured. They are going ahead with surgery.

        Have a great Wednesday too! Sorry you're hungry all the time, I'm pretty much the same..and I'm sick of eating the same food all the time.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
