I wish I could say that Amy's stomach problems are over, but they are not. Don't think she has an ulcer, but she keeps having stomach pains, and taking the acid-reducers, like Dexilant. They can cause other problems if taken a long time -- osteoporosis, etc. She's taken them for over 1 1/2 yrs. I suggested she ask for a different med, or maybe try another gastro dr. "He" said the med she's taking was the "best there is," and she wouldn't consider trying anyone else. Oh, well.
Hope your mom is doing well these days!
