I had an endoscopy 3 months ago and showed ulcers in antrum & duodenal and grade b esophagitis caused by excessive acid production (not Zollinger–Ellison syndrome thankfully) and not by h pylori. I was placed on 40 mg ppi once a day for 3 months and now i am tapper off it directed by the doctor by taking the ppi once every other day and zantac the in between days. I have been avoiding fried, greasy foods and alcohol, exercise frequently, drink plenty of water but I still get burning sensation sometimes when my stomach is empty. I asked my gastro doc if i can take DGL, mastic gum, slippery elm etc he said no because i am young and does not want my body to get used them (23 years old btw). I am worried on why over 3 months the ulcers have not healed when it should take like 2 months at max to heal. I am due back in another 3 months when i stopped acid blocker medicine for a repeat endoscopy to see if the ulcers healed with normal tissue. Any suggestions or tips?
