H. pylori 1st treatment failed

Posted , 7 users are following.

I just had a stool test result back and I'm still infected with H.pylori. I just freaked out, cried a lot and I feel really sad and worried. I've been for many months now with a gastritis, which is so painful and have a lot of nausea too. I also have a baby to take care of. All this made me so tired and depressed. Sometimes I feel I just want to die so I dont feel pain anymore. What do you do if the treatment fails? GP gave me again antibiotics but I know now that they dont work. 

Is there any other options, treatments? Please help.

    How are you now Leni? We've spoken before on the gb group I think. I feel like I have the same issues as you. I had my gb removed in October 15 and and nothing but problems since. I have stomach burning and gnawing pain can last for days at a time, feel very hungry all the time too. Gp said gastritis and gave me omeprazole I really think I must have h pylori too. I am going to make appt to ask go to check for h pylori.

    I really hope things improve for you soon I also have a 1 year old and it's so hard to carry on with this pain x
