Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!

Usually gastric lesions needs 4-8 weeks on PPI 's treatment to heal.

Otherwise there are a lot of situations where the time to heal gastric lesions is longer.
The success of healing of gastric mucous depends from:
- smoking
- alcohol use
- NSA ID's drug use
- H.Pylori infection

Hope it was helpful to you!

Thank you for the response. Do you think if I ate a full liquid diet for a week it would heal faster?

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

I think if you ate a full liquid diet for a couple of days (2-3 days and than gradually switch to semiliquid diet) it would heal faster.

Wish you a fast recovery!
