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

I have a close friend who has Barretts - I think for ten years now. He is scoped every year and the last scope showed no signs so to answer your question, yes, it can heal.

His doctor mentioned too much is made out of Barretts and it seldom leads to anything more serious.

My friend has been on PPI's for ten years now; he has a normal life style. Drinks socially and eats what he wants.
