EGD biopsy says I have it. One thing I forgot to ask my doctor is how can they guarantee itโ€™s gone after the 2 weeks of antibiotics? Anyone else have to go through the treatment for this?

I had it. After the 2 weeks on the prescribed medication i had to wait another 2-3 weeks and then submit stool.The test came back negative.

Interesting. Well, I just got back word that all I have to do is take the meds and there's no further testing afterward. Thank goodness...not sure I'd be able to mentally handle having to do a stool sample LOL

LOL. It was my first time ever. Glad you don't have to do it. The instructions were so specific. I thought I was going to do it wrong.

Even crappier news than having to do a stool sample...my stupid insurance doesn't cover the PrevPac!!! So now they're trying to figure out what to do...ugh...everything was going so great until now.

Check to see if they cover the generic brand.

Has nothing to do with that. The PrevPac he called in was generic. What the deal is...#1) My insurance is stupid...#2) One of the meds in the pack is not covered (the Lansoprazole)โ€ฆthe other 2 are covered (Clarithromycin and Amoxicillin). So when sold in a pack, they deny the entire thing. What we have to do is call in 3 separate Rx's as generic and I have to pay out of pocket for the Lanso. Insurance will pay for the other 2...this nearly gave me a heart attack LOL

OK. I know that my nurse called it in twice. So that might have been the case with me to.

For the last 6 months my mom's Dr has been trying to get rid of hers and everytime she gets tested to see if it's gone she still has it. Then today I found out I have it also but I'm hoping mine doesn't last as long.

I hope you have better luck!

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery! ย Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman. ย I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve. ย I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month. ย So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrieย (sp?). ย  Feeling reallyย scared and nervous about getting the sleeve. ย If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery? ย  Thanks!

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
