Helicobacter Pyrori & Pancreatic Can

Postby kchardman » Thu Apr 12, 2007 8:14 pm

In 2002 my dear wife had a test fo H Pyrori which proved Negative.

In the Sept. of 2005 my wife was having pains in her stomach area & back & was tested again for H Pyrori this time it was Positive . After treatment for H P the pain remained & after some delay my wife was confirmed to have Pancreatic Cancer.

Have any of your loved ones had a test for H Pyrori with results of positive or negative to this infection & also have Pancreatic Cancer

My husband was tested positive for h pylori and treated with triple therapy anti biopics, however the pains remained and worsened, he has since been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I wonder if there is a connection that this lead to cancer.

My husband had helio bactor pylori in about 2005, he was treated with a week of steroids.
When he become ill early 2010 they re tested him but it was negative, the pain continued and 3 A&E visits and numerous doctors appointments they finally diagnosed pancreatic cancer.
