I am a 39 yo male and a Clinical Psychologist by profession. I have Sliding Type Hiatus Hernia, GERD for more than 8 years along with Antral Gastritis. On 27th. April, 2013 my Endoscopy Repost indicated the follows :
1. Sliding Type Hiatus Hernia.
2. Barrett’s Oesophagus (Biopsy taken).
3. H-Pyroli negative.
In the Biopsy report, dated 3rd. May, 2013, it is clearly mentioned that the features of the Microscopic findings are consistent with Barrett’s Oesophagus (Section shows one bit of tissue having hyperplastic squamous epithelium. Other bit of tissue having columnar metaplasia and chronic inflammatory cell infiltration into the stroma).
On 12th. June, 2013, I have undergone a second endoscopy by another Gastroenterologist. This time the report indicates :
1. Normal mucosa except islets of columnar epithelium in lower esophagus without esophagitis or Barratt’s.
2. Presence of Hiatus Hernia.
3. Urease test : Negative
This time no samples were taken for biopsy.
During the period from 3rd. may till 12th. June, I took no medicines other then Ranitidine 300 mg. Now I am totally confused about what is the real problem in my abdomen. My doctor also increases the confusion by prescribing me Trifluoperazine which is normally used to treat Schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s. Please advise me.
