Hi, my girl friend had abdominal pain from a while, and about a year ago the doctor discovered that she has helicobacter pylori. and lately her doctor said that she has ulcer but the pain remained and the treatments didn t work. yesterday the doctor made a Gastroscope and today she said she has to do a surgery to remove the inner tissues affected from the stomach... could that be an ulcer or something else? and if so what can it be? my girl friend age is 25

Hi Rami

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Your girlfriend probably has an ulcer disease.The treatment plan would be a combined antacid(PPI s) and antibiotic to eradicate H.pylori ,.A biopsy of ulcer would be taken while gastroscopy is done.If this treatment cannot relieve the symptoms there are surgical option available.Her doctor must have decided on surgery.
Please get back to us with more information on what she is planning for and we can help you better.
Take care.
