|A little about me:||I am a married 55 yr olf female, mother of 3, one child deceased, grandma of two teen-agers that we absolutely adore to the universe and back.
May of 2010 I was diagnosed with BE (Barrets Esophagus) I have battled GERD from hiatal hernia since 1994. One EGD in 94 that diagnosed ulcers in esophagus and then another EGD in 2009, supposedly no Barretts at that time but I don't think the MD was the greatest. So who knows.
My father passed away from Esopagheal cancer in 2008, I helped take care of him and saw him go through much. So of course being told I have a risk of it now, frightens me to now end, and trying to wrap my head around it and act non-chalant. I got the biopsy report with notification of getting EGD re-done in 5-6 mos and stay on meds. No notice of dsyplasia or anything. So don't know where I stand on that end, no follow-up appts. nothing. Just a re-check within 6 mos. So it doesn't help me with my wondering ya know.
So I am trying to find others who understand.
