My mom is 74 which makes a bit of a difference to begin with. She started out with gallbladder symptoms and was going to have that removed. It was during her consult for that she told the doc that her stools had changed and he sent her then for a CBC and her Hgb was 13 but she runs around 14 something. So she had lost a little blood but nothing bad. They then put that SX off and scheduled an Endo/Colon and they found through biopsy, HPylori, gastritis and Barretts. They never found a bleed so they think that it was from the gastritis. She even had a small bowel series and nothing ever showed up. She had no idea at all that she had reflux or a problem in that area. I myself have been on Nexium for 7 years and never thought that she had a problem, hers was silent which is a rather scary thought. After the second round she got rid of the bacteria. She is still sensitive to many foods and has to watch very closely what she eats so that the bacteria doesn't over grow again. She has never done the breath test, always stool. Her symptoms are sometimes slightly nausea, bloating, belching, gas all of that fun stuff. Her B-12 was never low. Your B-12 is low and will take a while to rebuild. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
