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 received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
