[B]Hi, I orginally underwent an endoscopy to find out why I was anemic. During the proceedure the doctor found that I had Barretts and asked if I had heartburn oftern. My husband told him that I had it rarely. Since coming home from the proceedure (Sept) I have had constant heartburn almost everynight. More or so lately every night. He did put me on Nexium 40mg a day and I have been taking it. How ever, even after eating very light meals about 6pm and going to be about 10 - 11 pm, I find that I still have extreamly painfull heartburn. It has been getting worse steadily.
My question is this...how can someone who can't even remember having heartburn at all before the endoscopy all of the sudden ends up with Barretts and has my problem. I'm wondering if during the proceedure a mistake was made and some damage was done and this is what I'm suffering from. Am I wrong or what? I see the same GI doctor on the 20th and I'm really upset about the whole situation. So any information would be very helpful. sorry this is so long.. [/B]
