Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.

Other than vomiting and being underweight do you have any other issues?
Do you have abdominal pain/distension?
What are all the tests done so far?

Thanks for your quick response doctor..
I dont feel any abdominal pain/distension in my stomache...
USG Abdomin scan, endoscopy were done 5 months back.. (as per the report my doctor told that I have ulcers in my stomache).. apart from that nothing was found..

I have been under medication since then (colospa, pantocid, and betonine syrup)

Hi,
Were you tested for H.pylori infection 5 months back when you had all those above mentioned tests done?

Was a relook endoscopy done to see if the ulcer which was diagnosed before had healed after the treatment?

Ok.
Then the best thing to do is to get a repeat endoscopy done and if you are positive for H.pylori infection, get treated with antibiotics.

Try to avoid taking painkillers.
If you have the habit of smoking or drinking alcohol, try to quit.

I hope that answers your question.

Sure..
am i supposed to go for any test other than endoscpoty to confirm the H.pylorie infection?

There are many different ways of testing H.pylori infection including endoscopy test.
So just endoscopy is enough.


I hope that answers your question.
