How are you combating the ulcer? Is it an H-Pylori infection? I had what felt like an ulcer for about a year! Horrid heart burn after eating anything, nothing worked till I started taking acidophillis tablets 30 minutes before each meal, took about 3 months to completely heal but I was cured! Now I know when I'm doing damage to my stomach because it starts burning if I have too much soda for a few days in a row, I just stop and have a few yogurts and the burning stops!
