Anyone with varices?

I have esophageal varices and have had 2 bleeds - first March 2007, second October 2007. They banded 2 bleeders after the second bleed and started me on Inderal and Prilosec. No problems since and no sign of bleeding. Does anyone have experience with esoph varices or know anyone with them? I'm wondering about the likelihood I will have another bleed...

I do not have this condition, but I was wondering if your doc had ruled out portal hypertension? Are you also abstaining from alcohol (sorry for being personal)?

I have esophageal varices and had to have banding done twice first time they had to do one banding and the next two banding. T he doctor put me on nadolol and amlodipine. The doctor said as long as I keep my blood pressure normal I shouldn't have any problem. I hope this help.
God Bless,
