Will bananas and pineapples help me in ulcer with gastritis ?

Hello, I m a 30 year old man (height:179cm, weight:75kg) first diagnosed with stomach ulcer 2 years ago. Some time last year I was admitted having suffered from gastritis - which in my opinion is ulcer related. I used to love apples and oranges but was warned against them as it doesn t help my situation. I do a lot of bananas and pineapples and then once in a while paw-paw. My questions go thus: do these fruits help improve my condition? does ulcer eventually disappear? and can ulcer lead to cancer? And yes I have also practically given up on my beloved Coca-Cola as well as other fizzy drinks.

so Mr anonymous, start taking Tab Pantocid DSR twice daily for 2 weeks and then keep taking it jus once daily and u can eat and drink anything u want to. in todays age any ulcer which is not cancer is treated by these wonder drugs of which i have suggested one to you. after say a month u will not even need to take the tablet daily. one more thing consult a gastroenterologist and please get an endoscopy done, and yes although i suggest it at last that should be ur first priority
