Yes there is definitely a chance of ulcer recurring if proper precautions are not taken. I would suggest you take over the counter proton pump inhibitors like rabeprazole 20 mg twice daily (fasting and 30 min before dinner) for 2 weeks and avoid heavy, oily, spicy meals and maintain proper timing. If there is a small ulcer then it should heal with this. If your symptoms still persist, then an endoscopy will be necessary.

If you had a definite ulcer then it can occur again. Ulcer recurrence is common in working people unless sufficient precautions are taken. At the same time, your symptoms may be simply due to reflux into a sore foodpipe. Since heart disease is ruled out, don't worry. It will be relieved by proper medication after appropriate consultation. Regards
