The majority of us that have had an Oesophagectomy are on PPI medication. It seems to be that patients with Adenocarcinoma need PPIs the most and that accounts for 70% of these cancers. The Squarmous cell carcinoma patients tend not to need them as much..
Therefore could I ask members who have had Adenocarcinoma, if any of you has been able to wean yourself off PPIs or reduce the dose. I am currently trying to lower my dose to 10mg a day and so far so good with Gaviscon at night but its early days.
I would appreciate your comments on this as we are going to discuss it at our next support meeting
