Duodenum ulcer

The problem is everytime I each I have a sharp pain in my stomach. Would you advise if I need to have gastroscopy? I have booked a folow-up check-up with my GP, but can you advise?

Hi Lusho
It can sometimes take up to 6 weeks to get better. Try using Mucaine 10 ml three times a day for the pain or before meals. If after 3-4 weeks there is no improvement, you could need a gastroscopy.
