I have two heart stents and have been taking plavix for 5 years to prevent stents from blocking. Have had three hospitalization due to bleeding from my stomach ulcers. What are the safest blood thinners or alternative treatments to use for people with stomach ulcers ??

Are you seeing a Gastroenterologist? If not, why? If the triple therapy to treat the H pylori does not work, as mention by Stephen, then you should have either open surgery or laparascopic surgery. Laparascopic surgery has become the preferred method. In rare cases certain genes can cause the stomach to produce too much acid. A procedure called a vagotomy is used to correct this problem.
What are you taking for your ulcers? No anticoagulant is safe when you have ulcers. Everyone of them will make you bleed, if there is a source of bleeding.
