I've had this! - Here's what to expect.

This page is still being compiled.
It features patients' own stories of their first time experiences of some of the procedures and treatments Barrett's patients may receive, so others about to undergo any of them themselves will be better prepared.
If you can add your own experiences of any of the procedures listed, or others we haven't yet listed, please send them to us.
