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 ?
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.
why a CT scan is need after an endoscope ? i browse through some website, if doctor suspected it's cancer, a CT scan is required ( or MRI ) is it real that i have cancer ? what are the chances of getting it since CT scan is needed.
im worried that my dad will have any mishaps. :'(
my mother has been calling her friends and tell them about my father situations
whatever i heard is make me really worried and scared.
does your father look skinny when he had H. pylori ?
what are his symptoms ?
thanks for sharing anyway, he's going for CT scan tmr. i'll let you know
about the report and the medications. everyone is my house are suspecting that its cancer ): but i choose not to believe it.
he dont have any symptoms. im so worried ):
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.
hi, the report is out today, do you still rmb ?
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.. ):
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.
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
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. 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.
