I have had h-pylori for three weeks untreated. My doctor has prescribed me medication to treat it but I need a prior authorization for two of the medications. I can't start the first without the other two. I did some research online and every website I went to said h-pylori can cause stomach cancer. Does my chances go up the longer I don't treat the h-pylori? If so how much? I just really worried. If I do end up with stomach cancer am I aloud to press chargers on my insurance company for either not or taking to long to pay for the medication? I also read that a lot of people do have h-pylori don't have symptoms but I do. Is there any way I can push the PA? And what should I do if my insurance declines paying for the medication? I can no afford it out of pocket it is a very expensive drug. Is there any alternative to cure the infection?
