Well I had my endoscopy yesterday and received great news in that the terrible reflux attacks I have had have not harmed my esophagus as bad as we thought it would have. They have been so frequent and so bad that there was a concern of Barrett's syndrome and terrible erosion and damage but not yet. Now if I could get rid of this pain in my entire body I would be doing good. I don't mean to be selfish, but I would love it if I were in the middle of a stem cell transplant that would transplant me back to the way I used to be................ Oh well, I guess we have to enjoy the little bits of good news we get along the way too.

Warm hugs from Minnesota.

Good to hear that there's no damage to the esophagus! Hope you are able to reduce the frequency of the reflux.

Good news! I do have Barrett's and it's not fun. One step at a time... maybe, just maybe you'll be transplanted back. We can all hope!
