I have/had Barretts. I found out when they did an endoscopy after me complaining of pains in my chest. They put me on a double dose of Protonix to control the pain. It took a couple months but there is no longer any discomfort. Many doctors suggested I get a Nissen Fundo as I have a weak LES. I decided against this as the side effects for this surgery is to severe for me since I don’t have any pain currently. My personal stipulation to that decision was that I must find a way to get rid of Barretts. In my area I found a doctor that is extremely experienced in the HALO ablation technology to destroy Barretts. I had my first treatment about a month ago and my doctor says he believes the Barretts will be completely gone when he goes back in for the follow up in a few weeks. If its not he will do a touch up and another followup.
Maybe someday if the PPI's can't control the acid I will reconsider the Fundo. Hopefully I can hold off till they come up with an alternative!
