Dr. Love,I'm torturing myself about the stem cells. I am convinced that the survivors are people who don't have stem cells that have shed (the cells stay in the primary). But, with all my DTC's and perinodal involvement, my stem cells must have shed, right? Do you think the stem cells are going to be the end of me?

Background: For the past 5 years, I've suffered from Acid

Background: For the past 5 years, I've suffered from Acid Reflux. For the first two years, I was on Nexium until it stopped being effective - experienced a sour stomach and nausea. My doctor switched me to Dexilant, which has worked well ever since.Two weeks ago I came down with the stomach flu - cramps, loose stool, nausea. It passed after a week or so. The past few days I've begun to experience nausea and a burning feeling in my lower esophaugus. My stool has been strange as well - either hard, small dark pieces or soft light brown ones.Toiday I saw a doctor, who palpated my stomach and said things felt fine. I asked whether it was possible the dexilant had stopped working for me, as had the Nexium. She said it was unlikely and that she thought it was bad bacteria hanging around from the stomach flu and wants to test me for H. Pilori. Lab results will take a week or more, she said. All she gave me in the meanwhile was Zantac, which she said I could take along with the dexilant.Tomorrow I am leaving for a non-refundable vacation. Yesterday and today I felt pretty crummy and not much seems to reduce the acid/nausea, which can last for hours, sometimes an entire afternoon or evening.1. Do you agree with the doctor's recommendation or is there something else you'd recommend? I can go to a different walk-in clinic tomorrow before flying if necessary.2. Is it safe to postpone dealing with this by a week or could I be doing serious damage to my esophogaus? I ask mainly because I already suffer from Gerd and don't want to take any chances.Thanks!
