Default scary word

I had a gastroscopy done today (they stick a camera down into your stomach to see whats going on) because of my acid reflux. After the surgery was done i was layin in the hospital bed, and the Dr. came in to talk to me. He said that there is a thing called "Barrets diesease" starting in my esophagus, which could be pre-cancerous, pretty scary. I will know in about a week weather the biopsy samples come back pos or neg. Gonna be a nervous week. :(

Good luck! The odds are in your favor since the cancer that forms as a result is extremely rare. We'll be thinking about you!

thanks for the support guys.
I did a little research on Barret'* Esophagus, and it looks like only apx 5% of the cases are pre-caner. So that is somewhat releaving.
Once i get word from my doc i'll let ya'll know, which way it goes.
