I, nor any one else, can tell you what to do. It is your body, your decision.

Your surgeon and physicians can explain treatment options, the risk factors and benefits. With information, you can make a well-thought out choice.

I know that H. pylori treatment includes the use of two antibiotics and most treatment regimes include a proton pump inhibitor such as Prevacid or Prilosec.

H. pylori is probably the cause of your chronic stomach ulcers. Fro people with Helicobacter pylori infection, the main goal is to get rid of the bacteria that causes the infection.

When the ulcers bleed, endoscopy can control bleeding in most cases. Endoscopy is a way of looking inside the body using a flexible tube that has a small camera on the end of it. This instrument is called an endoscope.

Now, the problem of gastric obstruction. Have your physicians identified the cause of the obstruction?

Treatment depends on the cause of the obstruction.

You need to know what is causing the obstruction before you agree to any surgery.
