Hi There-I had a scope yesterday and had two biopsies, one for short segment barrett's esophagus and a red area in my stomach biopsied for h.pylori. the research i have done on the Barrett's is concerning and conflicting. Some say its a pre=cancerous condition and it is not reversable. Others say it is inflammation and may likely never be cancerous. I would appreciate any info, I am a little concerend and have several days + until my results come back,Thanks so much

Hi Kelli and welcome!

It is so hard to deal with conflicting information. From what I understand of Barretts it is not really reversible, but only

thank you Becky. I have myself pretty worked up today which only worsens my symptoms and it is a vicious cycle.
