Barrett's Esophagus
I am diagnosed with Barrett's Esophagus by GI doctor.  The biopsy report says:
"Esophageal Biopsies at 39 cm include the squamococolumner junction.  The Sequamous epithelium shows no abnormality.  The contiguous gastric cardia mucosa contains focus of pancreatic metaplasia and a focus of complete intestinal mataplasia.  Dysplasia is not seen.  The lamina propria contains moderate numbers of lymphocytes, plasma cells and eosinophils."

Can someone tell me fthe following:

1.  Do I need to do another ECD/biopsy to confirm?
2.  Should I consider procedures to remove the intestinal mataplasia?
3.  What role is pancreatic metaplasia play in Barrett's Esophagus?

You comments will be greatly appreciated!

HI JD and welcome to the GERD forum.

I am sorry u r having to deal with this condition.I have not had ne experience with Barrett's Esophagus. And since this is a support forum, we can not advise u on what ur biopsie reveals or what u should do.

If another member has had this condition and the above mentioned proceedure they can share their experiences with u to help u decide what u need to do.

I would suggest u try our expert forum...there a dr may answer ur questions....do be patient as the forum only allows so many questions.

Please keep us posted on ur progress
