Anyone know if the EGD procedure is painful? Just starting my weight loss journey and getting one step closer to getting my procedure!

Mine (I've had 3) have not been the least bit painful. They put in an IV, lay you on your left side, put a block on your mouth so you don't involuntarily bite down on the instrument, and shoot a sedative in the IV. When you wake up it's done. Nothing hurts.

I've lost count of how many EGD's I've had done (probably close to 10 now) because I have EOS (eosinophilic esophagitis) so I usually get 1-3 of those a year (I'm overdue for my next one and, oh joy, I will have to get my throat stretched the next time I have one -_-"). The EGD's don't hurt. They give you something to put you out and the next thing you know, you're waking up in recovery and 10 minutes later they let you go home. You'll probably be a little dizzy from the meds they used to put you under so my advice is don't watch your feet lol. Also, depending on the meds, you might be nauseous afterward as well...

nope. Not at all. They knock you out before they do it.
