Thanks Bill, I had an endoscopy to confirm the Barretts. It wasn't diagnosed until 2 months after my GERD diagnosis. I have a follow up with my GI doc on 8/23/13. He was on vacation after the endoscopy so I got the news from his nurse. I'm 62 years old and have never had heartburn or any other digestive problems in my life.
In the past 3yrs I've had a detached retina, rotator cuff surgery and hand surgery but no GI problems !!!
