I am a 24 year old female.
A few months ago I had an endoscopy which showed a hiatus hernia and Barratts esophagus.
I was told by my consultant I didn't need to worry about the Barratts because it was only a small amount and whilst in the endoscopy he had removed the affected area. (not sure I quite feel it's nothing to worry about)
Anyway, I was referred to have the 24hour manometery and ph test, I have just had my results back as 48.9 and told this is high and is a concern. (considering whilst I had the test i would say my symptoms were only 3/10 it's a concern for me too)
I currently take ompreazole 20mg 2x a day, and to be honest my heartburn problems are non-exsistent whilst on it, however I'm continously tired, and if I'm not constipated I've got diarrhea!
I have been told to look at the options of either staying on ompreazole long term or having the laprascopic fundoplication.
I really don't know what to do, can anyone share there experiences with me???
