Barretts esophagus: What treatment did u receive following DX of barretts? Antacid? Acid blocker like zantac (ranitidine) or prilosec? If treated with proton pump inhibitor like Prilosec or prevacid, med may have helped heal condition. If no treatment was given, then possible one of 2 diagnoses incorrect. Ask doc to compare tests.
