Good job. : Healthy lifestyle with fresh vegetables and regular exercise. No more smoking or tobacco in any other form are the good ways to avoid cancer. You will also be able to loose weight with above changes. This will help many diseases

First of all: speak with your Primary Care Provider since you are NOT on maximum medical treatment! Both H-2 Blockers (eg Zantac...Pepcid) at PRESCRIPTION strength and PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS (eg:: PRILOSEC, NEXIUM (esomeprazole) ) ALSO at PRESCRIPTION strength can be taken TOGETHER under the care of your PCP or Gastroenterologist. If you have not consulted a Board Certified GI doc DO IT!! Hope this helps! Dr Z
