    Post Barretts Esophagus, Reflux, coughing, the works !!!

    Have suffered for years with reflux,,,, had every test to check why I had a pain under left ribcage---- seemed to be GERD..
    Been on prilosec for few years... and have regular yearly endoscope which confirmed barretts a few years back... getting worse though-- coughing more & more.. throat feels like it's closing off,,, always clearing the throat-- GOD I hate this.....
    Had an esophagael manometry 2 days ago (tube placed in your nose, to throat to the stomach & you drink much water to see how your swallowing is-----felt like a shorstring in the throat saturated in dippity-doooo ... damn !!!
    My doc wants me to consider a nissen fundoplication if I am a candidate (depends on test results if the swalling is OK) ---- I was hoping I could investigate photodynamic therapy for the barretts (supposedly can heal it)--- the stretta procedure----- time will tell---
    more tests & talks coming....

    glad to be here--- take care all

    Glad to have you here eli_dale. Isn't it amazing what our bodies do to us? I have had a constant burning in my chest for a few months and it is driving me nuts! I feel for you and I hope the doctors get you the relief you need. Keep us posted and welcome!
