Today, gastrointestinal ulcers account for 10% of other diseases. If you do not start timely treatment, the disease manifests itself as frequent relapses and complications( bleeding, stenosis, penetration).The main danger of the disease lies in its seasonal exacerbation( spring, autumn), during which people need to be especially attentive to their health. When the disease is brought to a progressive state, it is not uncommon for a patient to undergo surgery.
How much is the stomach ulcer treated? The approaches to therapy are purely individual and completely depend on the anamnesis of the disease, as well as the predisposition of the organism to rapid convalescence( the state of immunity).Until recently, the recovery period after the appearance of the first symptoms was quite lengthy and could last from several weeks to several months.
The main problem in the duration of the treatment of stomach ulcers was the primitive or inability to carry out qualitative diagnosis and therapy. Modern methods, tools and approaches to the treatment of pathological processes in the cavity of the digestive organ, greatly simplified and reduced the recovery period after eliminating the causes of the disease.
The rehabilitation period begins with the onset of the illness. The main goal is to quickly treat gastric ulcers and achieve the scarring of pathological formation in the shortest possible time, and to achieve the maximum restoration of functional abnormalities in the digestive system.
In connection with the discovery of the harmful effects of Helicobacter pylori bacteria, the approaches to conservative therapy have changed: the number of drugs that were previously used to suppress symptoms and complications has decreased, and the period of remission has lasted.
How long does a stomach ulcer with modern regimens be treated? To date, the average period of scarring ulcerous formations in the stomach is 5 weeks. A so-called "red scar" is formed and signs of progressive gastroduodenitis may appear.
Therapeutic regimens are not considered as effective if they do not include drugs for the eradication of Helicobacter bacteria and high-tech agents that reduce gastric acidity( proton pump inhibitors).Their application is regulated by a specially developed protocol for the treatment of stomach ulcers. It is unique, and the therapeutic effect when using this protocol is much higher. This reduced the average recovery rate by about 7 days.
There are generally accepted trends that determine how much a stomach ulcer can be treated:
- Scarring of a fresh ulcer. Under certain circumstances and timely diagnosis, the treatment period may not exceed 14 days. First-line therapy is used. If repeated diagnosis shows a positive result, then dietary meals and preventive measures are prescribed.
- Prolonged scarring( about 56 days).The second or combination therapy is prescribed. Every 14 days, a preventive examination is carried out.
- Resistant ulcer. How many stomach ulcers heal with a similar diagnosis? As medical practice shows, it can be scarred up to 84 days. With exacerbations, this period may take longer. It requires a special approach to treatment. Combined therapy is prescribed, and in special cases - surgery.
