Hi,
my husband has same problems.He lost 50 pounds in last 14 months.He was treated once with antibiotic,but they never checked if the bacteria is eradicated.He still has a lot of problems,his stomach can't digest right,can only eat bland,small meals and has discomfort all the time.Next mont he has been scheduled for another endoscopy,to see what's the problem.If you have H.Pylori infection,your stomach can not work properly and if you don't digest food right,you can't absorb it eather,so you're loosing your weight....

my dr has me on previcid for the last three weeks.
now he has given me the antibiotic treatment.
i am afraid to take them because one of the side effects is nausea. i am already so nausea, dont want to take an antibiotic that will make it worse.
