Ulcers usually are not caused by what you eat. Most often they are caused by a bacteria but sometimes are caused by smoking or NSAIDS. Did they test you for h. pylori?

Sorry to hear about your ulcer, but it's helpful to hear others with same experience. I take no NSAIDs and I'm a non smoker, non drinker...I was dumbfounded to find out I had a large ulcer. I put a call in to my docs office to find out about h. Pylori. I just like answers and want to know how to get past this . Thanks for your reply.
