Yesterday I was diagnosed as having Barrett's Esophagus. It is when the esophageal tissue starts changing into the same tissue which represents the intestine. This condition is not reversible and increases my risk of developing esophageal cancer. I now have to eat more meals more regularly, sleep at an angle and have to go for an annual biopsy.
It is a condition which can be managed, and if done well, will not be the cause of death.
I am scared. I don't want this to develop into cancer. I want to see my boys grow up. That's all.
