An update Mar 16th 2023

I had the endoscopy/gastroscopy this afternoon. I opted for sedation, which they said wouldn’t put me to sleep. However it must’ve done because I had no idea anything had been done, when I was put back in the recovery room. The endoscopy/gastroscopy revealed no sign of cancer. What it did reveal was Barrett’s esophagus.

So do you have acid reflux? What do they think caused it?

I’ve been on Omeprazole 20mgs for quite a while now.

Is there any changes you can make to reduce the Barrett’s?

There’s dietary changes that can be made, and there’s medication. If I made all the recommended dietary changes I’d end up feeling utterly miserable. It’s a matter of balance. I’ll have less of rather than none of.
