No ulcers but have polyps

So I got a call about my results, so to make a long story short I was scheduled for an edoscopy on Monday and was supposed to have an upper GI. So after much waiting and confusion. I got an Upper GI barium thing.

Today I got the results and I do not have ulcers. However I do have pretty bad reflux and I have polyps in my stomach.

We're now going to schedule an endoscopy and a biopsy on the polyps.

I'm confused.... do polyps bleed? I started seeing the doctor because I was having blood in my stool. They thought for sure I had an ulcer but I don't.

I'm supposed to stick to my protonix for the reflux. And that's where I am now.

Re: No ulcers but have polyps

Polyps don't usually bleed, usually they are harmless. I've had a few.

Is the protonix helping? How are your symptoms?

Re: No ulcers but have polyps

The protonix is helping a lot. I've not had any bleeding for about 5 days now. I didn't even know I had reflux. I've never had any symptoms or heart burn. So I have no idea if it's helped that at all
