Your treating doctor: You doctor will guide you further. Most times gastritis heals pretty quickly...Like in a couple of weeks. Metaplasia/dysplasia is somewhat more unpredictable but follow up examination of your stomach should be considered in order to monitor this change at least once yearly till it normalizes.
