Looking 4 answers re: duodenal ulcer caused by H-Pylori bacteria. Spent most of Dec. in pain, 6 days in hospital. Taking Omeprazole, Amoxicillin, Clarithromycin. Been home from hosp. since 13th, have appetite, but when first eating or drinking some pain occurs in stomach upon food arrival. Eases off soon. lost almost 15 lbs from not eating for 10 days ( good thing)? Non drinker, non smoker, don't eat spicy food.....old ( 72)

Ulcers take 4-8 weeks to heal. The medication can also contribute to your pain as well. Eat smaller meals throughout the day 4-5 times.
