Did you get retested?
by: Kerri Knox, RN

It's 'standard of care' to get retested after having H pylori therapy. I have no 'input' other than to get tested and see if you still have H pylori. 1/3 of H pylori treatments fail, and you should have been tested after your treatment to see if you were one of the 2/3 that was successful, or one of the 1/3 that was not. If you were not retested, this is major negligence on the part of your doctor.

And EVEN IF you got retested and you were negative, it's two years later and you could have it AGAIN. Antibiotic treatment, even if successful, is not a lifetime treatment for this infection. If you got it once, unless you've changed your diet and lifestyle that allowed you to get a chronic infection in the first place, there is no reason that you can't get it again if you are exposed again.

Get retested, as that is the only reasonable and logical next step if your symptoms have not gone away, or if they have come back.
