Continue h pylori : Treatment. You may also add Pepcid (famotidine) complete. No alcohol!

Maybe not related: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort, ; not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." if pain with meals consider peptic (acid), biliary, or pancreatic disease. If bleeding or tenderness is present, this suggests inflammation, ischemia, or infection. "swelling" ;/or exquisite tenderness is quite concerning. Get help!

Agree that a consultation is needed. Gastritis could be the cause of swelling, but not necessarily.
