Had an endoscopy 3 days ago : 1 day ago I started to feel soreness in my stomach , just below the rib cage ,especially when I push on it -- The resultsof the endoscopy were that I had H----, for which I have not started to take the meds as yet . I am concerned that something was stirred by the procedure ???

    Hello Carl....  I'm sorry but I can't guess what H stands for..?.. and hence can't think what could have been stirred by the procedure other than a bit of minor bruising inside or similar??  After all a foreign object with a camera has been inside your workings...  I'm glad you have a result for which hopefully there is meds for to settle it/cure it or other options maybe in the future to get rid... All the best...

      Hi Deb

      Thanks for the reply -- It is H-Pylori-- I never heard of it ?? didn't seem to have any symptoms before the procedure ?? now I am told a course of 3 different antibiotics for 2 weeks will take care of it .. This H-pylori was uncovered during the biopsy results from the endoscopy -- sorry I got the endoscopy , didn't have these symptoms before --

      Thanks

      It was H-pylori-- It is recommended that I start a course of 3 different antibiotics 2x daily for 2 weeks .

      Thanks

    I assume the H is H-Pylori bacterium?

    It;s unlikely your pain is a result of the endoscopy as it would have been apparent sooner. It could be the bacteria was distrubed by biopsies? So I recommend you start the course of tablets now.

    If you do think there's something sinister about your pain, talk to the doctor about it.

    You have no rectal bleeding correct. This was an upper GI or a lower if it was an upper and you were bleeding he probably get nauseous and vomiting up some blood or coffee ground looking blood at some point that's what they should be calling you for post up in asking did they do that. What meds did they give you. And if it's antibiotics you are to get on probiotics ASAP.

    Hi Carl

    I don't think the procedure has anything to do with your symptoms, as they are generally  very safe . I think if they found infection caused by H Pylori bacterium then you should go to your GP and start the eradication antibiotic therapy asap & finish the course as prescribed. i hope you get better.

      Thank you for your reply -- It just sems that I got symtoms that I didn't have before the procedure I was concerned that biopsies did something . The H pylorium was found by the biopsies -- I had no symtoms . NO heartburn, or gerd -- went there because I spit some blood a couple of times -- No evidence of that was found . Also I question whether a 2 week treatment is necessary of 3 ddifferent antibioticsand than prilosec for the rest of my life .

      Hi carl

      I don't think you'll need to take prilosec for the rest of your life as these are to control symptoms if you have any that is. But I would certainly take the 3 antibiotics as prescribed for 2 weeks to get rid of the H pylori infection.I don't want to scare you but this bacterium can cause stomach ulcers, gasritis & stomach cancer if left untreated.I hope this helps you.

      Standard treatment for H-Pylori requires a combination of antibiotics and, as with all antibiotics you must complete the course, even if any symptoms go, or it will come back.
