For past 11 months have had persistent indigestion daily, week in week out. Seen GP who gave Peptac liquid. Referred to Gastro Consultant who did gallbladder ultrasound as endoscopy and ct normal 3 years earlier when i had similar symptoms. Was normal, carried on putting up with it as felt like a nuisance. re referred myself and had gastroscopy last week. Shows Barretts Oesophagus, a tiny hiatus hernia, gastritis, a stomach full of bile as the pylorus was wide open. I take many medications already none of which really help, Omeperazole,Ranitidine, Peptac, Sucralfate.
Waiting for biopsy results to grade Barretts which is a worry in itself, obviously bile in the stomach isnt good and can I believe increase risk of gastric cancer. It also explains the persistent symptoms. Does anyone have experience of the Pylorus not closing and how this is treated please. Thank you.
