Hello everyone, I am new here. I am 39 years old female. I came here because I feel so lonely and desperate because of all what I am going through.
In August 2014 I was tested for H.Pylori and it came positive. I had my treatment for this and after three weeks I was tested again and I was all clear no more pylori. However I have not been the same since then, I dont have sharp pain but I do keep burping a lot and this burning feeling in my stomach is terrible.
I went back to the doctor and they asked me to have an endoscopy done which I am waiting for the appointment to do it, in the mean time I have been taking Omeprazol. The doc suspects I may have an ulcer and all I do is worry, some days I am fine but then next minute Im so ill.
I am not the same I feel really down I have read a lot about ulcers what can I eat what cannot eat, I have followed all the rules and still not well. I thought ulcer heals around 4 to 8 weeks, well if that is true how comes I have been this bad for such a long time, it has been now 6 months. Can someone please help me and tell me if this is normal when you have an ulcer? is it possible that an ulcer could take this long to heal? Please, please I am so desperate, when you talk to doctors and ask all questions it is almost like they dont have time to explain to you properly about things.
