hi i was treated with 2 lots of antibiotics about 5 weeks ago for Helicobacter pylori and also been taking lansoprazole ever since, the thing i need to know is how can the doctor find out whether or not the bug has gone if your still taking the lansoprazole? i have 30mg twice a day and i'm still in lots of pain and have all the symptoms i had b4, and these pills are the only thing that helps with the pain but from what i've read it interferes with the Helicobacter pylori test. so would i have to drop the pills for 2 weeks and put up with the pain b4 i can have another test?
i did feel better for a couple of weeks after the antibiotics but then it just all flared up again...i was wondering if i've re-picked up the bug from someone close or a pet maybe?
would be grateful for anyone's help as the doc hasn't really said a lot and i'm so fed up with the pain.
thanks mandy xx
