Follow up needed: Would recommend taking only Protonix (pantoprazole) and Zofran if needed. Eat slow, small, light meals. Follow-up will be critical with your doc in case your symptoms do not respond to above plan.

Stomach Pain: Sounds like the Doc covered most of the things we can treat. Antacids might help till the protonix (pantoprazole) kicks in and the tissue heals in. There is a medicine called Carafate that will coat an ulcer and protect it while tissue heals. This might help but will need to see doc. Sometimes gallstones will cause cramping after meals, especially fatty meals. If the symptoms dont improve then may need doc again

The medicines...: ...prescribed by the ER sound appropriate to your symptoms, but a true "fix" starts with careful evaluation that identifies the cause of your symptoms, so the cause can be cured. Give your doc a call please.
