I am on PPI's and they stopped the bleeding immediately and they did find HPylori too.... so I took the antibiotics. Last summer I had the same thing but without HPylori - maybe they missed the HP back then? It could just be the HP. The biopsies on both occasions ruled out IBD - yet my doc seems to thing it "may be" Crohns which has scared me.
My Haemoglobin want down to 9.2 and has now stabalised at 9.8 for the past 2 months. Life sucks.
I didn't realise iron is absorbed in the duodenum - so how do we get around this? Has anyone else found it difficult to replace lost blood?
