In brief: 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.
