Barrett's Esophagus or HPV Esophagitis. Is it curable?

Hi, I m a female, 27 years old. I ve been diagnosed since year 2000 with Barrett s Esophagus , Chronic Esophagitis + GERD and Chronic Gasthritis, Also I has a history with recursive H. pylori. Today I recieved my last biopsia results and I am very scared. Now after almost 11 years, it seems I don t have Barrett s Esophagus (according to this results) but now the diagnostic is: Chronic Esophagitis with acanthosis and coilocytosis + Erosive chronic gasthritis with presence of H. pylori (again - I just finished the treatment 6 - 8 months ago). So, I m afraid I am suffering from HPV in my esophagus, can it be a bad diagnosis? and therefore be confused with the barrett s esophagus?

APPROXIMATELY 70% OF THE HUMAN POPULATION SUFFER FROM ACID PEPTIC DISEASE WITH SYMPTOMS LIKE
--BLOATING OR FULLNESS OF ABDOMEN,
--BELCHING
--BURNING OF CHEST,
--FOREIGN BODY SENSATION IN THROAT,
--IRREGULAR BOWEL MOVEMENT, MOSTLY CONSTIPATION SOMETIME LOSE WITH MUCUS
--NON SPECIFIC ABDOMINAL PAIN,
--PRICKING SENSATION IN ABDOMEN,
--WEAKNESS,
--LETHARGY,
-- AND EVEN A MAJOR CAUSATIVE FACTOR FOR HEADACHE.
CAUSE:
OUT OF THE 100 PEOPLE SUFFERING FROM THESE SYMPTOMS, I BELIEVE THAT THE CAUSATIVE FACTOR FOR 98% OF THESE PEOPLE IS ADHESIONS OF THE ASCENDING COLON TO THE INTERIOR ABDOMINAL WALL AS A PROTECTIVE MECHANISM TOWARDS SUB ACUTE APPENDICITIS.
THE APPENDIX HAS A SMALL LUMEN IN CONTINUATION WITH THE LUMEN OF THE LARGE INTESTINE (CAECUM).IT HAS NO VALVE AND HAS A BLIND END.
SUB ACUTE APPENDICITIS IS A CONDITION WHERE THERE IS IMPACTION OF STOOL IN ITS LUMEN WHICH STAYS THERE FOREVER BECAUSE OF ITS BLIND END. A PATIENT SUFFERING FROM THIS CONDITION, THAT IS, INITIAL IMPACTION OF STOOL IN THE APPENDICULAR LUMEN, NEVER COMPLAINS OR HAS ANY SYMPTOMS OF PAIN OVER THE APPENDICULAR REGION BECAUSE THE LUMEN COULD ACCOMMODATE THE SMALL IMPACTION. PROTECTIVE MECHANISM OF OUR BODY NOW COMES INTO PLAY AND TRIES TO PREVENT FURTHER IMPACTION WHICH COULD OTHERWISE LEAD TO ACUTE PAIN OVER THE APPENDICULAR REGION OR EVEN PERFORATION WHICH COULD BE FATAL .
OUR BODY HERE FOLLOWS THE SIMPLE PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS. LET US IMAGINE OUR INTESTINE TO BE A PIPE AND THE APPENDICULAR LUMEN A SMALL HOLE ON THE PIPE.TO PREVENT LEAKAGE OF WATER THROUGH THE HOLE, THE PRINCIPLE IS TO REDUCE THE FLOW RATE. SIMILARLY TO PREVENT FURTHER LEAKAGE OR IMPACTION OF STOOL INTO THE APPENDICULAR LUMEN, THE MOTILITY OF THE ADJACENT GUT NEEDS TO BE REDUCED WHICH IS ACHIEVED BY ADHESION OF THE ASCENDING COLON TO THE INTERIOR ABDOMINAL WALL , RESTRICTING
