I was diagnosed with Barretts Oesophagus in 2010 and every 2 years have to go for biopsies. Have tried many PPI medications for the condition but my body rejects the drugs, the only thing that I can take is Ranitidine 150mg which I take twiice daily. After many years of being woken up in the middle of the night choking on bile was referred for the Nissen Fundoplication operatioan which touch wood has solved the issue of the bile and heartburn - the operation took longer than usual as the sphincter valve at the base of the oesophagus was not working and they had to wrap the top part of my stomach over the oesphagus twice beause of this. My endopscopy this year showed no change in the barretts cells but showed mild chemical duodinitis and was admitted to hospital back in January with severe acute pain which turned out to be an inflamed gallbladder which showed evidence of gallstones that I had passed and the gallbladder had cholesterol stones inside. Has anyone had any problems with duodinitis and also problems with their gallbladders when you have barretts oesophagus?
