    you definitely need to be careful because ulcers don't disappear overnight. Maybe acid reduction medication may reduce the pain in your stomach. you could ask your Dr about pepto bismol which relieves gastric discomfort. That may help you.

    chewing gum produces more saliva which may help digest so I don't know whether it works or not. probiotics ensure the bacteria in your gut is helpful to digestion do keep that going in order to fight the bad bacteria.

    H pylori and the strong antibiotics can leave your stomach very sore and sensitive for some time. Probiotic foods such ss yoghurt, sourdough and kefir can help to rebalance gut flora which antibiotics can disturb.  However, if this doesn’t help, ask to be retested because sometimes h pylori can be resistant to treatment or it can go away and then come back again.

    Hi kel19068

    How long have you been using mastic gum?....if you have been using it over three months and you find your symptoms are still the same then stop using it. Continue with the probiotics and go see your doctor as the HPylori might have returned. Sometimes not all of the HPyloria bacteria is destroyed by the antibiotics and can reproduce again..Get another check for HPylori....

      Hi kel73732

      Continue mastic gum on an empty stomach for another month as you have only been on it 2 months. If you still have symptoms after the next month discontinnue it. You can buy pepto-bismol over the counter....but i strongly suggest after the month is up and you still have a sore gut go see your doc for another HPylori test...

      Hi kel73732

      I am not sure about that. When you go to the pharmacy speak with the pharmacist about it...

    HI there, sorry to hear that. I had the same thing.  I can barely handle any foods... So I am mostly eating cooked oatmeal, vegetables and drink lots of water. Plus eat fermented food.. Sauerkraut etc. You should definitely stay away from sugar, alcohol and coffee!

    And if you have that stomach pain, try Aloe Vera capsules. That helps me very well. Plus try Kefir and definitely keep the probiotics..Kombucha is also very good.

    Good luck

    Hi

    It could be that you now have chronic Gastritis due to having to take those antibiotics, their very harsh on the stomach, you may need an endoscopy to see if your stomach is inflamed.
