The first part: is quite straight-forward. GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) with inflammation of the lower 3rd of the esophagus, antrum (lower) stomach and first part of small intestine (duodenum) was found. I believe PAN 40 is pantoprazole 40 mg, a proton-pump inhibitor. Don't know about PAN L and PAN MPS. Moderately serious to have inflammation in all 3 sites;should heal with proper treatment of 6-8 weeks

Typical for GERD: It is what this didn't show that is most reassuring. There is no evidence of ulcers or precancerous lesions. It just verifies that reflux has caused typical irritation to the tissues in the area. Proper lifestyle changes and meds should improve it if they are followed as prescribed.
