Peptic ulcers: If you follow the recommendation of your physician this is not necessarily serious. You should avoid nsaids (ibuprofen, aspirin, naprosyn and any medications containing these drugs). Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe as long as you do not exceed the recommended dose. Alcohol and caffeine products should be avoided. Foods with high acidic content such as tomato products and citrus can worsen your symptoms. ...Read more

What is the best medication to treat gastric ulcer.. My stomach produces much Gas and upper part of it got swollen up.. Being using omeprazole?

Maybe not just ulcer: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, &/or pathology outside the gut. ...Read more

Recently ended 2 week course of antibiotic for h. Pylori and gastric ulcer. Why does coffee still aggravate my stomach?

H pylori => ulcer: 2 week course of antibiotics only gets rid of h pylori if taken as directed. But that may not be enough time for stomach lining to heal, which is why coffee & other foods may still aggravate your stomach. Ask your doc if a short course of proton pump inhibitor like Omeprazole or Pantoprazole would be ok to tie you over until you're completely healed (which is never quickly enough). ...Read more

If they have a gastric ulcer or one in the duodenum, can they have pernicious anemia due to the stomach of duodenum being destroyed somewhere?

Possibly.: Pa is associated with antibodies that attack cells in the stomach. Besides interfering with B12 absorption, the stomach can develop atrophic gastritis, an inflammation of the stomach that results in the loss of all glandular tissue and scarring of the stomach. But ulcers are not a sign of this, and definitely not duodenal ulcers. The B12 problems come first, other stomach issues later. ...Read more
