To check that my stomach ulcers are healing well and the gastritis is gone. I dont think either of those things have happened, but here's to hoping.

Then on Thursday I am going for a CT angiogram to check for blocked coronary arteries and to see the condition of my heart.

My dad had early onset heart disease and they want to check that it isn't happening to me too.

Not great when you have health anxiety, but I'll be fine.

Good for you being proactive with your health. I know it can be anxiety producing to go for medical tests, but catching things early is the key to living a longer, healthier life.

I'm getting really nervous now, but needs must!

So my stomach ulcers have healed, which is excellent news, but I'm left with gastritis and a stomach infection. They have taken some biopsies to see what the cause of the infection is and what treatment course is the best.

In the mean time, I am back on a strict gastritis diet, basically consists of grilled white meat and vegetables. White carbs are a trigger for a flare up, so no white pasta etc. Brown carbs are good, so at least I can eat brown pasta and rice.

Glad the ulcers have healed. Hopefully they'll get to the bottom of the gastritis problem quickly and that too will soon be a thing of the past.
