It is unlikely a single biscuit will cause any harm. However, sugar has been implicated in the promotion of cid reflux and the development of Barrett's.

Searching the Barrett's Wessex research archive found these papers from November and December 2017 with nothing significant prior to that.

Dietary sugar/starches intake and Barrettís esophagus: a pooled analysis "Limiting dietary intake of foods and beverages that are high in added sugar, especially refined table sugar, may reduce the risk of developing BE."

Dietary sugar and Barrettís esophagus
"Sugar intake positively associates with BE. A low carbohydrate diet should be recommended for persons with BE and GERD."

I don't think there's any evidence of making the Barrett's worse. The Barrett's has developed to protect against the acid reflux. Whether sugar is likely to aid dysplastic progression is not suggested.

It took ages for me to get my fundo. As I've indiacted before,it's not priority surgery.

The dysmotility problem could become an issue. It means that food is not progressing properly down the oesophagus to the stomach. A full Nissen wrap could further impede that so they may look at alternatives like a Toupet wrap but that would depend on the surgeon's assessment and expertise.
