I went for an endoscopy on Friday and they told me that I have fundic gland polyps in my stomach as a result of my taking lansoprazole. The hospital said that I didn't need any further treatment and they didn't take a biopsy of any of the polyps. I assume this is because they didn't feel they are any threat but I don't know much about them so wondered if anyone else has had these.
I was also surprised that they didn't recommend that I reduce my dose of lansoprazole. I'm on 45 mg per day. I was on 60mg but reduced it slightly on instruction from the Consultant when I saw him in outpatients before the endoscopy 2 months ago.
I'm thinking of trying to reduce the dose though because if it's causing these polyps presumably just because they aren't an issue now doesn't mean they won't be in the future and I certainly don't want any more.
