Teresa,
In understanding what Barretts is now, I could have made some lifestyle changes years ago.I didn't listen and paid the consequences. Someone however was looking over me as I was extremely lucky in that my cancer was caught at an early stage.

There is hope but you must schedule regular visit to the doctor and watch what you eat. Keeping the weight down is very important. Best of luck!

Greg

Thanks so much Greg! I needed to hear a good report about this from someone. I have only heard how that if it turns into cancer there is no hope! I know there is still hope because God is the great Physician and He has healed me from many things. I don't understand why he hasn't healed this YET. However all my trust is in Him.

I lived with Barrett's for a number of years. Every year I would get scoped to monitor the stomach and esophagus. I was not so lucky and was diagnosed in 1996 with esophageual cancer. In my case the cancer was isolated and had not spread. My surgery was done at the University of Chicago Medical and I'm so grateful for the team of doctors that saved my life. The surgery required removing my entire esophagus as the tumor was so high up. I'm glad to say that 13 years later I'm cancer free.

To everyone out there with this condition, take control of your health plan. Ask questions and see a doctor at yearly to have you condition checked and have a scope at least every 2 years.

Best!
Greg
