All of that sounds awful! I don't really have a choice since the silent reflux and hernia caused the Barrett's and dysplasia.
A CBC and ferritin level test was run and my ferritin level is down again but not as low as when they did the first endoscopy. I'll have another infusion before surgery. The consensus is I'm bleeding intermittently due to the hernia. All this has been going on for most of this year and I'm tired of all the doctor's visit. In spite of all of it, I feel good but I guess that will change from the surgery and going forward.
I hope I can maintain a positive attitude and also burp. Could the surgeon do the surgery in such a way as to allow burps? And how many surgeries does he do before he's considered proficient or top tier?
