Re: Barrett's Esophagus - I have it and I'm scared!

God bless you. In your surfing, have you run across Barrett's Info site? Try that if not. Maybe it will be helpful.

I don't have it (yet) but I can understand you would be scared. I'm scared right now just having GERD/LPRD (meaning - chance of throat cancers)! But, try not to get too bogged down in it. It's hard, I know (after all, I myself seem an oddball - 1 of the very few who has bile reflux without any GI surgery at all, so few that no1 cares about it). But at the same time, it can be comforting thinking "there's only a 5% chance I could get anything".

I hope everything stays good and indeed, I wish we could all be cured of the diseases we currently fight so it doesn't get to be that far! God bless and take care!
