MikeL2 BS: Barrett's oesophagus (87* d) RE: BS: Barrett's oesophagus 11 Jan 19


Hi Steve

" lanzoprazole" ?? I have been prescribed Lansoprazole for indigestion
problems' ( are they the same??)   I was referred to have " both ends scoped and even had a date fixed for the top job sic. But the lanzoprazole cleared it all up. So I cancelled the appointment well before the date. The hospital were not too pleased that I cancelled.


Three months later I don't have the problems - except for some ocasional wind at either end but never both at the same time. If I am having a large meal and with alcohol with it I sometimes take a lanzoprazole a couple of hours before I eat.

Tonight for instance It is my wife's 80th Birthday and we are going out,
We don't know where as no. 1 son and his wife have organised it all.

All we know is to be ready for 7.30 tonight and a taxi will pick us up and return us at mid-night. So I will be taking a lanzoprazole just before we go out.

On a similar theme I had throat cancer some years ago and had to have many cameras pushed down my throat. Obviously not as deep as the other scopes but they went down my nostrils. No sedation etc but they sprayed something down to open the route down. The doctors called it " jumbo - jet fuel.!!
On ocasions I felt like gagging but I was " a brave boy" as the nurse always said.

It worked though.

Cheers

Mike
