I had an upper endo last Thursday, my gastro detected a small salmon discoloration and believes I may have Barrett’s. He took a biopsy to confirm but I haven’t received the results. Presuming it’s Barrett’s, do most Barrett’s patient have at least some Dysplasia initially? If so what is the general treatement?
From why I have read on this site I have discerned:
1. Barretts is manageable with the apppriopriate surveillance.
2. It usually doesn’t turn to cancer but in the event it does it will be detected in its early stage and is treatable.
My grandfather died at 71 from EC, he had terrible heartburn his entire life and never addressed it.
I am 37, just got engaged and my fiancée and I have been discussing starting a family and I just want to make sure with reasonable certainty I will be here.
