    Hi Ella, I had h-pylori about 18 months ago and was given 2 lots of different antibiotics for a week and you will probably have a ppi for the heartburn. Normally these should clear it up which mine did. The Dr might give you another course of antibiotics if the first lot don't work. The Dr had to change one of the antibiotics because it gave me stomach cramps and severe diarrhea.

    Good luck

      Could I ask how long after the triple therapy was it before you had the blood test ? And did they tell you to take any landoprazol after the therapy for a couple of months to see if things get better this is what they have said for me to do.
