Its been a while since I posted but in the last 9 months, i have had the following:
2 biopsies - one without sedation and one with (if you are given the choice, do not agree to have this done without sedation as I found just using the throat spray was absolutely horrendous and they didn't even get the biopsies required.
So it turns out I have Barrett's syndrome and am now being treated with Esomoperazole 40mg twice a day and 300mg of Ranitidine per day. They are sort of keeping my symptoms at bay but the side effects are pretty awful especially the thinning of my hair and the constipation.
I am now at the pount of considering surgery but really not sure what the best option is and am getting conflicting reports from two different consultants. i would be interested to hear from anyone who has had surgery and anyone who would know some of the options and the pros/cons of the options available.
thank you in advance
