    Hello Linda, sorry to hear your having this reflux for so long, sounds like a case of medical neglience, if possible you should seek professional advice from the Hutchinson or Mayo centres, you could have some dysplasia 'lesions'. The Mayo is leading a new treatment 'ablation' on this using radio waves it sounds promising for patients, I have had Barretts for 3 years now and have had a brother who passed away the condition.

    Thankfully my dad survived with the condition, having Barretts is a warning sign, but pleasse don't panic there are many different levels and some good medication, I am taking an asprin based omeprazole with ranitidine, I hope this helps you but please do not let the weeks pass by doing nothing. Best wishes
