I was exposed to h pylori and told drs and no one checked for 4 yrs!

by Kat

I was exposed to H.pylori from an ex boyfriend and he actually lost half his stomach,we did not live together,but I stayed over a lot! I immediately asked to be tested by my family doctor and HE REFUSED!I myself vomited daily AND until I would collapsed,Id go get Ivs and ask them to check me,just to keep being sent home from emergency rooms,told I had GERD. even though I never had heartburn!Each time I went in ER, I ASKED TO BE TESTED.

I always was beyond dehydrated and dangerously low on potassium! I asked to be checked for this by my pcp,3hospitals and even A pain management doctor!I have degenerative disc&fractures in neck&he found a tumor on my thyroid,sent me to the cancer doctor who did a double biopsy on me,and ITS BENIGN!I was still puking and losing weight,so cancer doc sent me to a stomach doc!She immediately listened to me, checked me, and here I am FOUR Years later,on hardcore antibiotics!I was finally heard and checked and wow! Why wont Doctors listen?

I had multiple spine surgeries and lived four years with H.pylori! I am a single mom!I am getting treated now, but this is ridiculous!I know some things mimic other things- but when you are so sick and no one listens! Telling doctor after doctor, that you were exposed to, and need checked for H.pylori! I have lost so much weight,teeth from vomiting, and now worried about my kid! Oh,and I am a nursing assistant and I had to quit nursing school and work and get on ssi .....this all seems like a nightmare! AVOIDABLE NIGHTMARE

So sorry

Hi Kat,

I'm so sorry to hear about your issues and the neglect that your doctors did. Unfortunately, that is the way the medical system seems to work. Particularly in the emergency room they are never going to check for H pylori. They just aren't.

It's these kinds of problems that had me quit working in the 'traditional' medical profession, and to start researching health myself. Fortunately, no one else needs to suffer the way you did, because no one needs to have the permission of their doctor in order to test themselves for H pylori.

Anyone who THINKS they MIGHT have H pylori and wants to get tested can just order an H Pylori In Home Stool Test and find out for themselves if they have H pylori or not. There is no reason to need the permission of your doctor to explore your health. You are your own best doctor, and we all must take responsibility for our own health. Doctors are wonderful resources, they should be used as such. But our health is our own responsibility.
