Had Endoscopy On Friday

Recommended Posts

For anyone scared of an Endoscopy pease don't be scared. You will get admitted have an IV and BP cuff put on and a blood oxygen light on your finger. They will take you to the room have you lay on your side and they gave me verdal one injection and then a second injection. I do not remember the second. I woke up in my room with them taking the IV and heart leads off. I got really hot for like 15 minutes and they gave me some Water. I left the hospital, got home walked inside unassisted and slept until 100 pm. It was the best sleep i've had in years.

I was admitted at 630am and was home by 900 am.

The disturbing thing was there was two biopsys taken and he informed me I had reflux. I do not think I ve ever had indigestion in my life.

Waiting for results and path forward. Throat is a little scratchy today (Sat).

Hope this helps

Thanks! I have mine on Monday. I am actually having two procedures. Some type of fat density, total body ultrasound. I am kinda worried because it is after the endoscopy and I hope I feel up to it!

Had my endoscopy about 2 weeks ago. It was a breeze. Friendly staff, full explanations, wheeled into a little room. iV monitor bp cuff...good night. Woke up, woozy for about 10 minutes, fine then out, felt great. Unfortunately I was biopsied positive H Pylori gastritis (imagine my surprise, I had no idea). Just finished 2 weeks antibiotics and prevacid, wait 2 weeks for an H Pylori breath test, and hope it's cleared. Once thats clear, i have 2 more nut visits and then have my ppw submitted to insurance. Keeping my fingers crossed. That said, endoscopy is a breeze. Everything else is work.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
