I thought I had already posted this here but I can't find it. If I did I apologize.


My Endoscopy diagnosed Barretts Esophagus. Which is a precancerous condition. I feel very fortunate that it was found so early. The Dr. put me on Prilosec 2 x's a day, had to raise the head of my bed 4" and not eat for 3 hours before bedtime.


I'm also learning that high fat foods trigger symptoms. Which is good for a lot of reasons. I am feeling a lot better and go back for another Endoscopy in 2 years unless the symptoms come back or worsen.


Anyone else have any advice about this?

I'm so glad you're feeling better and that following the directions of your doctor is helping.
