HiI had an endoscopy procedure done approximately 2 years ago. I was dx with 4 ulcers at that time and prescribed triple therapy, I also had 4 ulcers. the follow up endoscopy showed that treatment was successful. I have now received a letter for a follow up endoscopy, any idea why this might be? tanking you in advance

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Were these ulcers present in stomach or duodenum?


Customer: replied 10 months ago.
i had 2 duodenum which were classed as significantly large and 2 smaller ones. and they also found that I had heli-cobactor and treated that with triple therapy. I had a repeat endo done after that which showed the treatment was successful and ulcers healed

Do you have any symptoms at present?


Usually it is not required to confirm eradication with a repeat endoscopy or a follow up endoscopy at two years

The only reason could be a suspicious ulcer which require a follow up but as I said it is nor a routine to do endoscopy two years after successful eradication of H.Pylori duodenal ulcer
