I'm not sure that gall bladder attacks have anything to do with possible ulcers. But I'd be welcome to anything that says different----- that's not a testimonial (Study of One )

You may (MAY) be getting a not too effective treatment for H. pylori instead of the antibiotic treatment that helps but doesn't eradicate the bacteria IF you have them.That isn't a doctor's opinion! Just something to think about.

With all the bouncing about I only know that when they removed my gall bladder the attacks stopped. Why would I or the doctors then question anything?

If later I thought I had developed ulcers (either before or because of or after - 40 years later is a moot question). Getting a belly ache and thinking of ulcers and milk and tagamet (which worked for a while) plus a lot of other OTC's which worked to a certain degree - until it got to the point where they didn't work.

It was too long ago to remember what was said - and yes, I appreciate all the input and will have another question for the doc (poor guy ). But the point is - my meds are working for me now - anytime we have tried anything new has been a disaster and I will not suffer those conditions lightly ever again if I can possibly help it.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
