In brief: Statistically likely

H.Pylori status is checked with the intention of treating the infection to eradication, when found.
However, no regimen works 100% of the time, and your H.pylori may be resistant to the first antibiotics used. Under treated H.pylori may increase your risk of persistent or recurrent ulceration as well as of stomach cancer. Take your drugs to completion for best results & greatest chance of cure.
