Anyone with GAVE (gastric antral vascular ectasia)

Ok.. just read over the full printout my GI gave me this week... Endoscopic results showed "linear erythema in antrum, suggestive of GAVE". Going back in a couple weeks to have some of this cauterized to prevent further bleeding.

anyone with experience with GAVE?
