    This morning my dad (pops) went to the doctor to have his throat scoped and checked due to a little pain which we all thought was from our families acid reflux disease. All of my family has scars and what not from acid in the esophagus, and not too long ago a doctor had told pops and I that we most likely had hiatal hernias. Not a huge deal it is just a spot in the esophagus that has been weakened by the acid and a bulge(like a blood blister) is in your throat. The pain is very annoying at times so me being without insurance at the time was excited for him to go find out what the problem was. To make a long story short they found a tumor in his esophagus. He is currently having more tests done as I type this to find out the severity of the tumor. I know alot of you know what he is going through (he acts fine) and since CK5 is the rest of my family I would like to ask for your prayers. We all Thank You and may God Bless all.

    You're in mine, too. I just went through a bit of a scare with the exact same thing a few months ago. Does he have Barretts syndrome, or already beyond that? You kinda made is sound like you all have barretts (scar tissue). If that's the case, you guys need to find a way to get it treated asap.


    Please feel free to PM if you want to chat at all.

    By the way, I cut coffee from my diet by 100% when my Dr. explained Barrett's to me. That had an immediate positive effect on my heartburn, enough so that I go without pills now and then and don't get reflux right away. Everyone's body chemistry is different, so that may have little effect on you. The difference was incredible enough to me that I still highly recommend at least trying it. Your body can only feel better without coffee...

    Thanx a million so far guys. Inu I first thought of you when i went to post this so thanx and may we all be as strong as you, and our prayers are still with you too.
    So they let him come home for the night(or two) so we got to hang out for a bit and we are all confused a bit but hes cool (my moms freakin a bit and I guess in my own way I am too). Ill keep yall posted as to where it all goes. They said he will need radiation and cemo(sp?) but they need to run more tests and study the ones they did today.


    You guys are the best i dont know who else i would be able to count on that i never met but it means alot to me to know your there.

    I'll say a prayer for your dad, and your family as well.

    It's unfortunatley out of our hands, so it's all we can do, and hope for the best.

    I lost my dad to a cancerous tumor in June. But, just remember, not all tumors are cancerous. I hope this is the case for your dads.
