does anyone know how long one could experience GERD before having to worry about
cancer, if they are experiencing it daily from a bad LES valve?
For example, if all the doctors and medicine vanished from the planet, and you had to put up with your symptoms, how long before you would have to start thinking "cancer is going to be a problem soon?"
Hope the question isnt too odd. I know it depends on each individual and their situation, but am curious about a general guideline.
My only experience has been a friend who lived on antacids for 15 or 20 years before seeing a Dr. and finding out he had barretts...seems like a long time to develop to me.
