EGD biopsy says I have it. One thing I forgot to ask my doctor is how can they guarantee it’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.

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)…the 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

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!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating halfΒ my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
