How long does it take for this process to work? I assume this is a rebuilding process. They say when you are rebuilding your stomach lining it can take up to 6-8 weeks.
There is no specific time frame since there are so many variables. As we age we heal slower. If we are nutrient deficient especially from a lack of stomach acid we heal slower. If there is an infections such as H. pylori this can play a role in delayed healing as can the use of NSAIDs......
Do you just continue to take the TMG forever?
With all of its benefits I would say yes, but dosage can be decreased after a while to a level just for maintenance.
As far as the weird knot feeling. I don't have any change in stools, and don't notice anything unusual like you mentioned. So the bleeding ulcer I would say is ruled out. I just have the knot feeling every now and again about and inch and a half above my belly button.
