The lining of the stomach can heal within a couple of weeks, in cases where the gastritis was due to a discrete problem such as taking high doses of NSAIDs, and the inciting etiology was stopped.

However, if the gastritis was due to an infection with h. pylori, it will take some time to get rid of the infection, then the stomach has to heal. Likewise, if the problem was from stress, incorrect diet, medical problem, etc, then the underlying problem has to be corrected, before the stomach lining can get better.

Gastritis is rarely a short term problem. It took some time developing, it is going to take some time to get over. It can also become chronic, lasting months to years in some cases. So, it is important to get it under control, to determine what is the cause, change the diet as needed, treat it aggressively, and try to prevent it from returning (once it has healed).
