I'm glad you went and had that checked out. I was glad last year when I listened to my doc and had the test done and he found 2 polyps one of which was precancerous. So it is well worth having the test done.
As for soda I have had to give that up. It definitely causes heartburn. My doc said anything that is carbonated is out of the question. Probiotics can't hurt. I am taking acidophilus. I am just about ready to give up on all these stomach meds and go natural myself. Let me know how that works for you. Barb
