Gastric ulcers: The only way to tell for sure is to have a gastroenterologist look inside your stomach. But you can have a good idea if you have a return of whatever symptoms you had the first time. It is obvious if it is bleeding, but if it is abdominal pain or other symptoms, it may not be as apparent . If you are having recurrent symptoms, see your doctor or your G.I. doc ASAP. Good luck.
