I had an endoscopy done earlier and was detected with peptic ulcers 3 years ago...

What if I have any of the symptos you listed above?
What could be the course duration? Will I have to get an endoscopy done again...are there any other procedures other than endoscopy?

Brief Answer:
Please see the details

Detailed Answer:
hello! sorry for delay. I will advise you to get first some noninvasive test to rule out some of the possibilities like Ultrasound abdomen, stool examination, Complete hemogram and meanwhile start with a proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole. If all these tests are normal and there is relief in pain then it may be due to acid peptic disease (Peptic ulcer) only, then you may continue rabeprazole for at least 4 weeks.

Wish you a good health
