@nasale I’m sorry you have been diagnosed with Barrett’s esophagus. Here are some questions I think you should ask your doc:
1. When you told me last year that I had precancerous cells in my esophagus, was that just another way of saying I have Barrett’s?
2. Or were you saying I have Barrett’s with low grade or high grade dysplasia?
3. What eating plan should I be following?
4. Should I be on any medication?
Good news: Even though Barrett’s is identified as a precancerous disease, most people with Barrett’s esophagus do NOT develop esophageal cancer!
I was diagnosed with Barrett’s over 20 years ago. I’ve taken prevacid ever since. After 18 years I developed low grade dysplasia on segments of my Barrett’s. That is still not cancer thank goodness. But if it progresses to high grade dysplasia, it’s getting really close to cancer. So my doc is making sure I have RFAs (radio frequency ablations) to remove the areas of dysplasia.
