h. pylori

hi there, im a 51 years old male.
recently went for endoscopy, going to have a CT scan soon.
had pneumonia and gastric pain at about this year feb or march.
dont have symptoms like vomiting, feeling bloated before or after meals,
no loss of appetite. i do not have nausea feelings or no abdomen pain.
had medications like clarithromycin, omeprazole and amoxicillin.
i keep burping. why ?
will h. pylori cause bumps in stomach in different area ?
is it possible that the bumps will go away when i constantly take the medications?
will i recover from this ?

please reply asap.
worried ):

Not suire if u r saying u deff have H. Pylori but if so, u will be put on an antibiotic......it can reoccur.

My father had it after a gall bladder surgery and it took almost a yr to dx it......he is now on probiotics and is feeling much better.

Please post an update after ur CT

I went for endoscopy. doc found 3 bumps on my stomach of different areas.
can H.pylori causes the bumps ?
sorry, no offence. does your father look skinny when he had H. pylori ?
what are his symptoms ?
doctor gave me medication like clarithromycin, omeprazole and amoxicillin.
those are triple-therapy and are use to treat H.pylori or peptic ulcer.
alright. i'll let you know about the CT.

dont mind if you can reply my questions.
dont let me hanging.
thanks.

I am not sure about the bumos or y ur dr is choosing to do the CT....sometimes it is to be on the safe side...so don't worry untill u know for sure...stress can make all ur issues worse.


Trust in ur dr that he knows what to do for u...the meds sound like they should have an impact....mayb the bumps r a type of allergic reaction to the acid build up or H.Pylori??

Not being a dr I can not give u the answers u need...but I am here to listen and offer support.

anyway, i've received some mail. saying that bumps may be gastric polyps. usually are benign and have no symptoms. usually are detect accidentally by endoscopy.
can be removed and cured, bumps may disappear on its own. could the bumps be gastric polyps ? well, gastric polyps  can be caused by H.pylori.

doctor says that its bacteria in the stomach,
but the doctor is worried that the bacteria will cause cancer.
so my dad have to take the antibotics and have another appointment
which will be helicobacter pylori breath test.
i still feel worry.. ):

well. i will. anyway, can the bacteria be cured with omeprazole ?
Blank
620923 tn?1452919248
Hi...no I do not believe it can...usually other meds r used either an antibiotic or a probiotic can be used......omperazole is a pronton pump inhibitor not something used for bacteria.

I am sure the dr will rx the proper meds.

oh, well.. i think im wrong. H.pylori test is in the next appointment. doctor gave omeprazole to "protect" the stomach. my brother told me doctor suspect there's something in my father's throat, but no comfirm yet ): hais..
my father joins the 5 year check up scheme. the programme is by the hospital.
Blank
620923 tn?1452919248
So, ur father's dr is doing all the right things...and until it is determined ...this is the best he can do.And when the testing is complete if ur father has Hpylori or nething else then the meds will change.

I pray that it is only reflux and the meds he is on helps him feel better and the rest of the family as well : )

hi ! yesterday was the appointment. my dad did the H.pylori blow test the other day. then ytd was the consultation. doctor says the bacterials are still in my dad's stomach so, my dad is given 4 packs of stronger medications to kill those bacterials. they were Tetracycline Hydrochloride, bismuth chelate, metronidazole and omeprazole (which i know what's that for). what are these medications used for.
im still so afraid. ):

Omeprazole is to reduce stomach acid and is a gerd med.....

Metronidazole is an antibiotic. It fights bacteria in your body. It is thought to work by entering the bacterial cell, acting on some components of the cell and destroying the bacteria.

Metronidazole is used to treat bacterial infections of the vagina, stomach, skin, joints, and respiratory tract. This medication will not treat a vaginal yeast infection

Tetracycline hydrochloride,
an antibiotic.
indications It is prescribed in the treatment of bacterial infections.

I could not find Bismuth Chelate but this may be a good representation of what it may have been rx'd....be careful not to take too much...follw the rx closely.

Bismuth oxychloride is sometimes used in cosmetics. Bismuth subnitrate and bismuth subcarbonate are used in medicine.[1] Bismuth subsalicylate (the active ingredient in Pepto-Bismol and (modern) Kaopectate) is used as an antidiarrheal and to treat some other gastro-intestinal diseases (oligodynamic effect).

It can take quite a bit of meds to get rid of this condition.....I pray all this works.
