Good Luck
Still going after 10 years post finding HGD as 8cm's . .


Technically in the US I don't have barrett's as it is gastric rather than IM so I wouldn't have been treated for Barrett's, I'd have likely just been discharged.

I looked into a private scope here and it was £1500 and that's not the type of cash I have lying about.  I've never suffered from heartburn really since being on lansoprazole.  The odd bit now and then but nothing a single Rennie tablet won't resolve and this is very rare.

Technically No in the US I'm treated by MY Doc (IM or Gastic) not by UK or US standers and my ins pays for it so that makes the NHS or the US standers incorrect Get It .Once again I'm alive by my Doc standers . If u don't have the Funds to pay for treatment then u must live by the NHS protocol .
I felt NO Pain and had 8cm of HGD
Sleep well and always trust the NHS they know better..

Sorry Allan
I genuinely canít remember the size of Barretts I had. Think it was around 5cm. Not huge but not insignificant either.

No problem at all, gives me a guide. I am 1cm. Makes me a little bit less stressed as your post worried me when I read it since I've been discharged.
