General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

First of all, your friend should have stomach controlled with endoscopy. Some stomach cancers may only look like ulcers and act like ulcers. And this is the most important condition to be ruled out.
Ulcer resistant to treatment(not cancerous) sometimes needs to be treated with partial stomach resection. Helicobacter Pylori infection can be present and prevent ulcer from healing. All this can be checked with just one simple endoscopy.
Depending of the results he might need antibiotics to eradicate this bacteria and long term therapy with PPIs.

Your friend should avoid coffee, alcohol, spicy foods, fatty foods, fruit juices, chocolate. Increase mineral water intake. Last meal should be 2 hours before sleeping, head should be elevated a little bit while sleeping.

Hope this will help.
