Hi,  Talk to your doctor.  Barretts cannot be cured but the symptoms can be controlled.  You can live for many years maybe even a life time without any serious problems.....good luck   Dave

Just curious how could they not see it. I thought they could usually see it during the scope. What are your symptoms do you have GERD.

Hi I dont have Barretts, but think it must be pretty close as when I had Endoscpoe it was all pink & the doc did suggest barretts, he took biopsies that showed no barretts just change in Reflux. I must admit I am pretty worried as I cant seem to get this under control with the acid. I will need to look into further options am going to see GI next month I have been reading the nissen wrap post. I will most certainly consider it if medication dont work.

hi itsa not that noticable its  when they take a biopsy and they look under the micro scope they can tell. mt endo said small areas possible areas of barratts which turned out to be barretts. i,m going to have the lapro op then see about getting this treatment they doing for barretts.

I had heard on alot of other sites that it is usually noitceable and the doctor can usually tell.

When they do the endo and the esophagus is irritated can the docotr usually see this
