Hi Arlene......wow, great to hear you're doing so much better!!
Regarding new found ulcers in your stomach and small intestine..is the doc suggesting you might have CD? Did he do a breath test for h. pylori or take biopsies/swabs of them?
It's good the Nexium is giving you relief....
I hope your husband's prostate treatment goes without a hitch and that it zaps those dang cancer cells completely for good!!!
Healing wishes sent your way,
