H.pylori found during Preop testing.



Recommended Posts

I found out today that my endoscopy shows I have H.pylori and they are going to put me on antibiotics for 2 weeks to clear it up. The problem is I have my surgery in exactly 2 weeks. Has anyone else experienced this? Will the surgeon push back my surgery date since I have to take the antibiotics? Also do I have to eat with the antibiotics? I just started my preop liquid diet today.

I would call your clinic. They'll know the answers to that...

It is fairly common. H. Phylori is the main reason they do the endoscopy. They need to treat it before surgery. 2 weeks should be plenty of time to clear it up before surgery, but ask your doc your questions for the most accurate answers. Whether or not you have to eat with antibiotics, depends on the antibiotic. Ask the pharmacist. But even on a liquid diet, you could eat something on your diet with your antibiotic.

So I didnt have anything to worry about. The surgeon said if the antibiotic gave me nausea while on the liquid diet I can stop and resume taking them after the surgery. To be honest I was hoping they would say I could eat a little something with it...lol. She also is sending me for an ultrasound of my liver since my levels are so high. She just wants to confirm it's just fatty liver and not something else. It seems like for every test I have they want to do more test...smh. I know it's better to be safe than sorry. Or the test show something. The cardiologist sent me for an ultrasound and found mild mitral valve regurgitation, the endoscopy found h.phylori now the liver needs an ultrasound. But a part of me is happy to basically am getting a semi-final body check and if anything is wrong at least I know.

I'm on anti biotics for a different reason -- got a bad tooth. Have to go back to the Dentist on Thursday where he will either pull it or start a root canal. If I go with a root canal, I want it done 2 weeks before surgery...

Oh snap a bad tooth is no joke. I've had one pulled and I was feeling fine after about two days. I've never had a root canal. How long is the recovery?

As I remember, it takes about two sessions and then it's done. The last one I had done took a while to settle down and I had to have a tooth removed because the process still couldn't save the tooth. Eating a sugar free popsicle is just torture. I'm just getting it pulled. Ugh.

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
