Q&A: Have you had Helicobacter pylori bacteria and stomach ulcers?

Question by Ally: Have you had Helicobacter pylori bacteria and stomach ulcers?
I have been told i have had the bacteria as i have the antibodies, the doctors are not sure if I still have the bacteria, they are investigating. Does this mean I am cetain to develop a stomach ulcer? What would happen to me then? I’m only 25 years old.

Best answer:

Answer by karyn
an ulcer is not definite – but they are caused by that bacteria

Antibiotics and a slightly more careful diet should see you right – a stomach ulcer is NOT the end of the world (my father has had one for years, off and on)
