Hi everyone, I went to my Doctor for my ULCER because none of those prescription that helps me. First she put me on "PROTONIX" for 3 weeks. When it was over ULCER still lingers on. Went back to my Doctor again, this time she gave me "ACIPHEX" for 2 weeks. Feelings still the same nothings has ever help me ever yet. SO I went to my Doc again for the third time to insist to do something, this time he took a blood test and stool sample to see if I was positive with Helicobacter Pylori. Doctor called in to verify that I was positive that I had to start a "Triple Treatment". I heard these triple treatment would make people very ill. Any positive experience or bad that u can share with. As I am already being nauseous all the time of having this ULCER. Plus the bad thing is that My CIGNA insurance will not pay for my prescription. It is going to cost me $350. dollars for the treatment alone. This does not includes my family doctor's visit and endocrinologist doctors visit and the blood work done. I dont know how much this going to cost me. I am scared to see the bill. Oh my! What am I going to do?
