Thanks for your question.
H pylori infection can cause these symptoms.
H pylori is treated with amoxicillin, clarithromycin and omeprazole for 10 days.
Severe acid reflux also can cause these symptoms from stopping lansoprazole.
My doctor said he dident beliv it was helicobater.. He thought it was just the reflux and the hernias fault...
H pylori can be checked by checking the H pylori antigens in the stool.
Why was my CRP 45? Isn't that high? It should be under 5???
CRP can be high from any inflammation in the body.
Stomach inflammation is the likely cause.
Vural infection can also cause the gastritis and high crp.
Viral infection --correction.
So it dosen't need to bee caused by bacteria or virus?
virus can cause this.
but the symptoms will improve gradually.
I had a little fever last night of 38,3 0c
ok that can be related to the virus.
I don't have a fever now.
that is good--meaning you are recovering
i am going to the doctor tomorow to chek the crp agian. Do you think it wil stil be that high?
CRP may remain high for 2-3 weeks following an infection.
But it should come down gradually as you feel better.
Is Lansoprazol a good or bad medicine? It seems it creates A LOT of side effects??
It is a good medicine but some individuals may experience side effects.
Ranitidine can be used instead which may not cause problem.
I have tried : Omiprazol, Zantec, somac,Nexium and lansoprazol. Is that the same as one of those?
Pantoprazole ( protonix) can be tried.
Is har zantec?
yes ranitidine is zantac.
Is there a point? I have tried lot's of meds now... My doctor siad that Lanzo was the last try before a surgery. Are surgeries painful when it comes to hernias?
Surgery is not painful as anesthesia is used.
It may provide permanent solution.
Is it painful after?
first 2 weeks yes---but then gets better.
from a scale of 1-10?
Ok thats all i need fore now, thanks :)
