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

Thanks for the kind replies. I don't have any GERD and have no had any since I found out I was pregnant 9 years ago. So this is a shock to me. Of course I occassionally get heartburn but not like I used to. I went for an endoscopy 2 years in a row because of stomach aches after meals and the 1st showed nothing more than gastritous. The second showed Barretts.

In a few weeks I am going to see a doctor who specializes in removing the BE cells completely. Keep you all posted!
