Has anyone had a gastroscopy where they took samples of tissue to be sent to culture and do a sensitivity test to find out which antibiotics the bacteria is sensitive to in NHS Uk?
H. pylori positive in Jan 16 (in gastroscopy)
4 treatments later H pylori negative. Symptoms disapear gradually.
6 months later symptoms back again (h pylori positive confirmed with a stool test.
Now I saw a specialist which want to do the culture and grow the h pylori and do a sensitivity test before trying more antibiotics that don't work. But I don't think my insurance (Bupa) will cover that so I would like to know if someone has done it through NHS and how was the results.
