May I ask what was your symptoms for you to go to doctor and what stage? My husband did have acid reflux, but not on a regular basis; which is why it floored us. I pray that you stay cancer free ; wishing you and your family blessings.
I dont smoke and neither does my husband; he doesnt even drink....I have heard from people who have quit that its one of the hardest things to do. If you can beat cancer, you can quit smoking. I do have faith in god and pray many times a day ; maybe that could help.
