Hi thanks for your question.
You are suffering from gastric acid
from last 8 years without any relief. You have not mentioned in your question have you undergone any upper G I endoscopy
to establish the cause of gastric ulcer?.The treatment of the gastric ulcer depends upon the cause. Most common cause of gastric ulcer is infection by a bacterium called H Pylori, which is diagnosed during endoscopy by test called CLO also called as rapid unease test. Other causes include cigarette smoking
, alcohol, spicy food and pain killer. High coffee and tea are aggravating factors. Treatment depends upon the cause .H Pylori eradication needs antibiotics along with acid blocking drugs. If you’re having any one of above described factor, please avoid that. Duration of treatment depends upon cause and in case of H Pylori infection
, antibiotics for 2 weeks followed by acid blocking drugs for 12 weeks. You can visit OPD of Gastroenterology department of Apollo hospital which is open 6 days a week from 8 am onwards. Gastroenterologist at Apollo hospital may perform EGD (upper GI endoscopy) on you to diagnose cause of gastric ulcer. You can inquire about fee structure from the information counter of Apollo Hospital at Chennai.
Hope this answers your question .
