Hi Teacherman, yes I am on PPI's, 1x20mg Omeprazole twice a day.
This keeps my heartburn symptoms at bay, with occasional acid breakthrough. I do worry when I get the breakthrough.
Re surgery, I have volunteered for the proposed Endostim trial here in the UK. If I am a suitable candidate, and the device works, I hope that I may be able to give up the PPI's. Later on I would look at Ablation.
If I don't make the trial, I will consider Endostim surgery as a private patient, if I can afford it.
There are a couple of other UK sites I refer to for further info on Barretts,
