I don't quite understand your post - did she finally get a positive test result? I got h. pylori from a bad sushi restaurant - my dad, sister and her husband also got sick after we all went out to eat together. That is how I know where it came from (still love sushi, but only eat it at known good places near the ocean now!). Anyhow, 2-weeks of antibiotics cured it for all of us. But it was horrible before I got a diagnosis - it hurt to take a SIP of beer or coffee or anything that was not water. And I found our through research that they now think h. pylori causes 90% of stomach ulcers, so it is serious if not treated. Anyhow, good luck. She may need to try a different course of antibiotics as there is so much resistant stuff out there,
