the prescribed treatment is appropriate. However, we should look forward to prevent the occurance of ulcer in future.
That could be by healthy deitary habits.
Avoidance of smoking and alcohol.
a detailed information regarding the cause is required to guide you futher.
I suggest to continue the treatment of your doctor and maintain follow up.
