    Did you have an endoscopy to confirm a stomach ulcer? Is that how you were diagnosed? If you did and an ulcer was found, then the hospital should have your doctor’s notes stating that you had an endoscopy and an ulcer showed up.  See your hospital again and take a copy of your notes with your diagnosis. Tell them you are very surprised that they didn’t have your notes to hand.

    If you have an ulcer, you don’t need to diet.  All you need to do is avoid anything fatty, spicy or rich, eat little but often and don’t eat late at night.  PPIs are usually prescribed to heal ulcers and milk can also get rid of them.

      Thank you pippa but what is PPI's? Yes I did endoscope that was 2012 and they kept telling me that they were not that bad and all I needed to do was watch what I was eating now I change the hospital and I even gave them the name of the doctor who diagnosed them but they is still wants to do their own endoscope which it cannot happen as i told them my stomach is paining everyday now. Is there any other way of doing this without endoscope?

      You could ask for a barium meal examination which would show an ulcer.  You are asked to drink a barium solution which lights up the part of the stomach on an X ray they want to examine.  

      A PPI is a proton pump inhibitor medication that blocks acid in the stomach.   In the meantime, try avoiding fatty, spicy and rich foods and drink lots of milk. Eat little but often and eat blandly. This may be enough to treat them since you were told they weren't too bad.  Since you were given this reassurance, I would accept this because the endoscopy would have proven this to be true.

      Hope it helps.

      When I was looking at my post to you, I realised I had written gobbledigook and got my words twisted.  I meant to say ‘which lights up the part of the stomach they want to examine on an X Ray’.
