I am so frustrated. I tested positive for H Pylori in November. Took all the medications, which made me sick to my stomach (all the antibiodics) and just tested positive AGAIN at my pre op appt this week. Waiting on the nurse to call me and see what they want to do, but how is that possible? What if it doesn't go away, can I still have my surgery?

My Dr. Told me because I tested positive (I done the breath in a bag test). That I would always test positive with the breath test, that if anyone ever wanted to test me again it would have yo be done through blood. How did they test you the second time?

The thing about H Pylori is that you can have it, be treated and get free of it and then kiss someone who has it and get it again.  Everyone you kiss should be tested and treated.

 If you use the tool/pouch simply as a way to have restriction, then odds of gaining back are more than if you actually change your eating habits.  The year to year and a half post op that is the honeymoon period, you'll lose no matter what you eat.  However, after that period of time, if you haven't changed your relationship with food, then your body becomes more like a "normal" persons and you start to absorb calories again.  Grazing, eating the way you used to, and slider foods all contribute to re-gain.  So do ice cream, chocolate, candy, cookies, cakes and pretty much all white carbs.   NOW is the time to make peace with a healthier diet. --- HC

Thank you for this info! I had no idea it spread that way, and my doctor never mentioned that either. If I don't get rid of it will it delay surgery do you think?

Well H Pylori is a bacteria that causes ulcers and ulcers are NOT the friend of a WLS patient.  It would be up to your surgeon, but my bet is that you'll need another round of antibiotics before surgery.  Just quit kissing!  and maybe get your kissing partner to get tested...
