I was diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus without displasia and would like to have the Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) procedure to have it removed. I am also a PCA survivor with adverse pathology and don't want to risk a second cancer.
Has anyone had this procedure done ? And would they recommend the surgeon ? Or know of a surgeon who does this operation that is good ? I live in San Diego area and am ok with out of the area recommendations too.
Any feedback procedure and recovery time would be great to hear also ?
I was also told I have a moderate hiatal hernia and would probably also like to get this taken care of at the same time.
I have not had a gerd/reflux experience in 18 months during which I lost 50 pounds. This put me in in the mid-180s on a 6 foot frame so I'm hoping the cause of Barrett's is gone.
