stomach ulcer advise please - October 9th 2012, 09:48 AM

okay so I have been vomiting after eating since Friday and last night i threw up 11 times in 2 hours and I started getting an unbearable pain around my belly button on my right side so I ended up at the ER. The doctor thought it might be my gallbladder or liver at first but thankfully my blood work came back good my anemia is even gone( been taking my vitamins regularly ). Turns out what i thought was a horid stomach virus is actually a stomach ulcer the dr gave me phenergan, pepcid, fluids, and dilodid in my IV also made me drink a mixture of lidocain and maalox and sent me home with 2 zofran and 2 percocet to get me through the night since the pharmacies had already closed. She wrote prescriptions for carafate, zofran ( only a couple days worth) and a protonix script for a month to try and get rid of the ulcer and prevent any more. She said it is vey important to go see my regular doctor this morning to look into my treatment options for the ulcer because apparently it can cause some big issues if it goes untreated. I have never had one of these before so I'm kind of worried. Has anyone else had stomach ulcers? how did it turn out for you? advise please

I've had esophogus ulcers before. It's not exactly the same thing, but they are painful! I'm sorry that you're going through so much pain right now. Often times, I've heard, that ulcers can work themselves out if they're small. I think mine did because I don't experience any pain from them anymore, and wasn't on any meds. But to ease your mind, ulcers aren't uncommon and ARE treatable. Take the meds the way you're supposed to, and it should get better. I'm sorry I'm not much help, I thought I would let ya you know you're not alone
