I have constant pain on stomach, it does not go away since August 2018. I have been taking famotidine in August and even took Pantoprazole for a month. Pain gets worse when I do activities for example, lifting, cleaning, cooking, driving, so I am not able to do anything.
My endoscopy pictures attached.

Please someone tell me if I need to worry about it? Are there polyps or ulcers?

I am really scared of getting tumor, pre-cancer, or something serious.

Took a lot of ibuprofens last year, that must have started the problem.

Been drinking cabbage juice since Monday and I am scared of my life and future health.

Thank you very much for your kind help in advance. Appreciate it!

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on the endoscopy pictures (whose resolution was not adequate), there does appear to be significant erosion, indicating gastritis episodes. PPIs like lansoprazole should be continued for at least a month more before further evaluation. NSAIDS such as ibuprofen should be stopped.

Wishing you best of health
