I recently had an endoscopy and a biopsy was taken.  My gastro dr told me I did NOT have Barrett's esophagus, but my pathologist results left me wondering.  Maybe someone could clarify these results.

esph. biopsy - gastric type mucosa with focally dilated foveolar glands suggestive of hyperplastic polyp.

alcian blue stain/pas stain focally positive for intestinal type mucin within goblet cells

Two years ago, I was treated for DCIS in my left breast. The lump was removed and radiation after.  About six months ago, I had a xray for pain in my left upper rib cage below my left breast.  It came back negative and there was no lump.  Now there is a lump and tender.  I really thought I pulled something working in a nursing/rehab home, but it is swollen and a small dime size.  I am on tomixifen.

Dr geoff, I read your reply about the five hour energy drink and as a doctor myself I have a couple of questions maybe you can help me with. I drink one cup of coffe a day usually starbucks in the AM and thats it. What is strange and I agree with you that 5 hour energy should only have as much as a cup of coffee but let me tell you this stuff really makes it possible for this 45 yrd old to run 5 miles three times a week. There is something more in this. Is it the high B12 and if so i guess that blows my theory that B 12 does nothing more that a placebo effect with patients that swear by it for energy. I'm confused can you help me figure this one out? Dr Dan McGrath drdan@mcgrathmedical.com
