So along with using different medications and antibiotics, you need to eliminate any factors that may delay or affect your healing process otherwise you’re at high risk of having a refractory ulcer!

Fortunately most people with ulcers (especially if the disease has not caused its complications) usually have a complete recovery, regardless of the underlying cause.

And again, it’s important to treat the disease completely since there is a chance for the disease to come back and cause serious complications. For this reason, you may have a number of follow-up visits and tests after treatment to see whether your ulcer is completely healed, especially true if it was in the stomach.

For more guidance, ask your healthcare provider whether you should take follow-up tests after treatment!

If you’re at higher risk of developing the recurrence, you may need to take an endoscopy, breath test, or other additional tests after therapy. Typically, these follow-up tests are performed at least two weeks after treatment – otherwise test results may not be accurate enough.

The chance of developing the recurrence varies. But if H-pylori infection is successfully cured, the disease is less likely to return. Recurrence associated with reinfection of H-pylori bacteria is rare in the North America and Europe, except in overcrowded areas with poor sanitation.
