H PYLORI

More than 50% of the world's population harbour H. pylori in their upper gastrointestinal tract. Infection is more prevalent in developing countries, and incidence is decreasing in western countries. The route of transmission is unknown, although it is known individuals typically become infected in childhood.

Tell us what area you drank this water in....maybe others need to be carefull visiting this area......A certain amount of mud in water is not harmfull...

Just had a look at the link that Sean bm posted.......can,t see anything there to suggest you can get this from drinking dodgy Polish water....

Hey! Butt-head, stop listening to the Great Cornholio. Do you even know where Poland is? Sorry to disappoint you but Poland Springs bottled water is not from Poland. I believe it’s bottled in a 3rd world country known as Main where there's all kind of disease and you’re right it dose taste like mud, serves you right for drinking that ****. Another Yank trying so hard to be funny and liked.

When the liver is constantly stagnant, sediment often settles out of the bile and forms accumulations that resemble stones, sand or mud in the gall bladder.

poland destroyed

Your story doesn't hold.

you shouldn't have drunk the tap water or used it for tea coffee etc (tap water in most cities is not good for your health and in some it isn't drinkable really)

What a nonsense story again - galbladder stones take years to develop and they look like grains of sand.

We know.

Anxiety and hypochondria would be my first guesses.
But you survived your trip and should be happy you made it.

mikeyst25, Your posts are ridiculous! First, your looking for Xanax, then you claim your taking 4mg and need to get off it, all your Vodka choices in random thread? Are you for real? Your a trip. You need therapy...Now you have H Pylori and Gall Bladder problem. Are you going to the DR. for more drugs?

and it could have been in the dish you prepared...or any restaurant in your town:P
moreover.it;s enough if you don;t wash hands before eating:P

Boiling your head would be a better idea...

It could have been in your stool too, so stop drinking from the toilet. WTF are you talking about, no one really knows. Transmission isn't clearly understood, and prevention guidelines aren't available precisely for that reason. Scientists suspect that H. pylori infection may be contagious because the infection seems to run in families and is more common where people live in crowded or unsanitary conditions, so you might as well recommend him not to be so cheap and spending some money on a better class hotel next time he goes abroad, where the sanitary conditions are semi descent and overcrowding not a problem. The only valid point you have is washing up, research suggests that infection is passed from person to person; exactly how this happens isn't really known. All this really tells us that most likely he is dirty and he dose not practice personal hygiene. Personal hygiene would have gone a long way in preventing his predicament if it was only practiced by him instead of ******** and moaning and blaming Poland for his condition. Abstract idea like a country can’t make you sick only you can, get it now. When you sleep around with someone who has STD and you get HIV, syphilis what have you, it’s not the country the hooker is from or the hooker herself that’s at fault; it’s you, buy a condom or keep your prick in your pants if you don’t know what other prick might have been there ahead of you. It’s common sense really. Instead of blaming everyone for everything start using your brain once in a while, but of course in your opinion it's entire world that's out to get poor innocent American tourist simply because he's American. If you get a disease that’s most likely related to the poor personal hygiene, well then it can’t be you that’s dirty it has to be the country you ware visiting. Guess what, millions of other people live in that country and they don’t have your problem, why do you suppose that is? Unlike you perhaps they wash up.

Well said..... I am an Englishman living in Poland , and i drink the water at my home , without boiling , not got sick yet....Mind you , i live on my own farm , where i get my water from a deep water well...

I some cities in Poland its a good idea to boil the water before drinking , but as a stranger in a country its always a good idea to talk to the locals , to find out if its safe to drink the water...or not...

However in this case i think that Polish water has little to do with your problem...

I think you are all bots.
It would explain a lot, you must admit :)

I TRYING TO BE NICE

But you are lying to us, your doctor never said those things and blamed it on Poland.
And lying is not a good start to any relationship (platonic), not even an internet one.

I DONT GET IT PEOPLE CANT HELP OTHER PEOPLE OUT

Because you are not asking for help, you are blaming a country on conditions that can't be got on a holiday in Poland.
