This year I was told I do have Barretts which was a shock as I did not have heart burn just felt like I had a cold, sore throat. As I am unable to take the tablets for GERD without being really sick, they want me to have the Nissen surgery to keep the pre cancer area 'safer' as I am high risk.With the tablets I have a 1 in 30 of it becoming cancer and a 1 in 10 with out the tablets. I did the 24 hour monitoring this week. I feel I am on high speed to rush and from what I read I could stick to being monitored by the endoscopy. It is so hard to find someone to chat to and this seems a site for of good advice. Please help.
My Doctor gave me 10 pages of info to read and I have been on many sites to read more on the Nissen.
I am really slim and can not afford to lose any more weight how do you maintain your weight eatting soups?
What do I need to concider before the op?
I don't feel I have any other options, do I?
