Is it deadly? I have a scope done and was told they saw barrettes esophagus and some inflammation but made it sound like no big deal. Was told to come back in two weeks to an office follow up but I had no days left to take off from work so I just alley and talked to a nurse. She said biopsy showed no pre cancerous cells. This week I have been reading a lot about affects on your body from taking omerprazole for an extended period of time. I went to see my gp today and mentioned I was going to try and stop taking it and change my diet. She looked at my results from my scope and said I would hope you don't since you have a precursor to cancer. So now I am freaking out. I am 31 years old and I have to worry about cancer now? What are the chances? Do I have to be on these meds forever? Wish I had the time to do that follow up or they would have at least told me more over the phone but I needed my job and the phone call they made it sound like no big deal. It's so strange because beyond pregnancy I never had problems with acid reflux until two years ago and even then it was a tight throat feeling nothing major. Also, if that tight feeling in my throat isn't always gone does that mean I need a higher dose that 40 MG?
