Chris's doctor just called - the biopsy done this morning showed Chris positive for H. Pylori
bacteria which can cause gastritis, ulcers, pain and ickiness in the stomach! This is a diagnosis much more in line with Chris's age and symptoms. . . and can be treated with medications.
Yes, he had been tested with blood work, and we were assured that a negative blood test was accurate. Yet, false negatives happen all the time. So it is good we went through the steps to have him tested.
He should be feeling much better by Monday!
Thank you God!
