Stomach pain so bad that it sent me to emergency room on 2/11/12. Diagnosis h pylori. Finished the antibiotics for H Pylori 2 days ago. Stomach still burning strongly with gnawing feeling. I have a sour taste in my mouth alot. Worried it's not gone! My question is: Is it possible to ever get my digestive tract healthy again? 2 years ago I had Campylobacter after simply traveling to Hawaii. Nobody gets sick from Hawaii! Next, I got sick (diarrhea, stomach pain) after going to Seattle! I keep having stomach issues! I need to go to Africa this summer to help with a project, but now I'm worried I will get sick again. I also have diverticulosis, GERD, irritable bowel. Not sure what to do. People recommending Aloe juice. I already take good acidophilus, colostrum, Ultimate Omega Fish oils, but still got sick anyway.
sounds like you could have some GERD. This is where your stomach produces too much acid. There are several OTC products out there that will help.Tums, is one, or prilosec, & I can't think of the other, but look at your pharmacy & it will list antacids. This should help quite a bit... Mary
My stomach and bowels shut down after back surgery. Not the same as your illness I realize, but I had a lot of pain and suffering until I had a colonoscopy. I was diagnosed with lymphocitic colitis. Before procedure, got completely cleaned out with Miralax and after, started taking Align(sic). I was watching a show on PBS on digestive health and the probiotics starting with the letters L and B taken in doses of billions were the most recommended for good stomach and bowel health. Continuously taking antacids messes up digestive system. Continuous heartburn is sometimes indicative of high fat content diet. I don't know if the probiotics would work for your situation, but I can attest after a whole lot of pain, diahreah, vomitting undigested food eaten several days prior to hurling, (and luckily getting a precancerous polyp removed), the Align has really worked for me. Still cannot digest some things like salad, so I have to watch what I eat, but pain is gone and digestion is much better. Good luck to you, and I wish you relief.
