Brief Answer:
Normal Ultrasound was expected..

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome back...

Please note..

1. Yes, a normal scan was expected..

2. Usually Gastritis is not diagnosed on Ultrasound.. It is more of clinical diagnosis and by Endoscopy.

3. Hence please follow the suggestions that I have explained and you should be fine..

4. CRP and H.Pylori tests are pretty much fine..

5. If pain is severe and is not controlled by these things that I have suggested, then probably you may need Upper GI Endoscopy.

But it again depends on how you respond with the suggestions given.

Hope this helps you..
