Hi all, I'm exactly a week out from ESG. All has gone fine with the exception of a pain that I've developed in my throat/chest when I swallow. The pain has been around for three days. It seems like an exaggerated form of heartburn. I started Zegerid (Omeprazole) about two hours ago. Will continue to take that and hope for the best. So far no relief. Has anyone experienced anything similar? As an aside, I'm down 8lbs the first week and my energy levels are ok despite being on clear fluids. I'm due to start soft food soon but I'm reluctant to do so with this pain.
